It is recorded that Mahatma Gandhi asked 16 state representatives to elect the right person as the President of Congress. The elected President would lead free India's first government. Sardar Patel's name was proposed by 13 state representatives out of 16.
Gandhiji requested the Sardar to step down in favour of Nehru. Sardar Patel respected Gandhiji's request not to be the first Prime Minister of India and that is how Nehru became the first PM of India.
Just imagine the sacrifice of the Sardar and the greed for position of PM of Nehru accepting the post although 13 out of 16 state representatives wanted Patel.
History cannot be changed..
Although Sardar Patel was a Congressman, as an undisputed and selfless leader and freedom fighter, of India, he belongs to all the parties and people of India.
The question of hijacking in such a case does not arise.

Sardar Patel's Soul must be bleeding now having been witnessing perennial China's incursion, despite having captured around 40,000 sq. km of Indian Territory from Nehru. Pakistan has been violating your boarder, inflicting ambush and killing your security forces at its sweet will; MMS is shaking hands with Nawaz Sharif, may be, as mark of his approval; MMS has recently signed an agreement with China conceding the strategic locations to them along the boarder facilitating situations like ' Surrounding ' against India. Scams, corruption, sleaze, hyprocrisy; inflation, et al., reached sky-high.

The Iron-man, architect of India's integration, should then be happy with the Congress, once a part and parcel of it? The ball remains in your court.
