New Delhi: Many of the Twitter users must be wondering why Sudhir Joshi is one of top trends on Twitter on Monday.

He is the person who apparently left Congress red-faced on its 131st foundation day. Sudhir Joshi is the content editor of Mumbai Congress journal 'Congress Darshan'.

The Congress party on Monday sacked him for publishing controversial articles criticising Congress stalwart Jawaharlal Nehru's policy on Kashmir and alleging that Sonia Gandhi's father was a 'fascist soldier'.

Today marks the Congress' 131st foundation day and coincidentally the party left red-faced due to anti-Nehru and Sonia Gandhi articles.

Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam has apologised for articles in the party's journal criticising Nehru, Sonia.

In the December issue of 'Congress Darshan', questions are raised on the decision of party icon and India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, for the state of affairs in Kashmir, China and Tibet.

The article clearly states that Nehru should have listened to freedom fighter and former home minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's views on international affairs.

It also criticised Sonia Gandhi and said her father was a fascist soldier.
