    Since when is Nationalization an achievement? She continued her father's legacy of turning India into a piss poor, third world, centralized Socialist State, directly leading India to the brink of bankruptcy in 1991 and laid the foundations of the povertarian and votebank politics that are inescapable for all political parties to this day. Even BJP can't come to power without pandering to lower castes and giving out freebies.

    Who is going to list Emergency? Who is going to list the tradition/culture of authoritarianism and nepotism/dynasty in Indian politics? You talk about overcoming Khalistan militancy? She created the bloody insurgency and Bhindranwale in the first place. She totally mishandled the Northeast, and she created lasting problems and a basis for militancy in Kashmir which you also ignored.

    When will people stop wrongly glorifying and airbrushing the legacy of Indira Gandhi?

    1. Annexation of Turtuk, Tyakshi and other areas permanently annexed from Pakistan (Laddakah area)

    These areas were Pak territories before 1971 war and now controlled by India captured by Ladakh scouts.


    And

    Capture of key Pakistani post in Poonch sector of LoC (then CFL). Post including Nangi Tekri has now a Tiranga flying over it.

    3. Op Meghdoot an unique mountain warfare military ops unprecedented in modern warfare history


    4. Stand up to a super Power bully USA dumping all it's empty chest thumping of 7th fleet even though India was a piss poor nation in 70s


    5. Making India among a leading nation in Space


    6. She died to early otherwise Nuclear Pak would be a pipe dream.
