Lohia and JP

I was happy to see the special issue (2 October) on Rammanohar Lohia, who forcefully opposed the dominance of upper castes and advocated that backward castes, dalits and other sections must have their share in the political system. Today his vision has taken shape.

Lohia did have differences with Jayaprakash Narayan. JP believed that Nehru could deliver socialism, Lohia had no such illusion. In spite of differences they often exchanged letters and Lohia had warm regards for JP. (I wish someone could collect and edit those letters.)
