Nehru Loses His Jim Farley

Harrison, Selig S.
November 1954
New Republic;11/29/54, Vol. 131 Issue 22, p15
The article focuses on the loss for Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru due to the death of his old friend and Cabinet stalwart, Rafi Ahmad Kidwai. It details how Kidwai was his trouble shooter and it was Kidwai who carried out Nehru's super delicate political mission in Kashmir, who almost succeeded in negotiating a coalition government with the Socialists in early,1953. Nehru and Kidwai fought hard against the traditionalist Hindu conservatism. Now, as he is bowing out as Congress President, he is sure to miss the fast-stepping Man Friday who knew him too well.
