(1) Abolition of privy purses: This was a criminal breach of trust that the princely states had reposed in the Government of India based solely on the word given by Sardar Patel. Overnight, several minor princes were impoverished and with that, the ancient Hindu cultural customs, celebrations and festivals ended. This was done at the behest of the Communists who had branded them as feudal and therefore had to be destroyed.
(2) Bank Nationalisation: An evil scheme authored by the Communist coterie around her. Not only did it undo the efficiency and profitability of these private banks, it stifled the Indian economy: the eventual explosion in NPAs, nepotism, mismanagement, corruption and criminality have their roots here.
(3) Land ceiling legislations: Another Communist perfidy which directly led to wholesale land fragmentation and bankrupted lakhs of farmers. The real beneficiaries were the large landowners who in the new caste-politics regime also acquired political clout.
