Read Full Text Letter written by Manmohan Singh to PM Modi Don't wipe out Nehru's legacy

The NMML at the Teen Murti Bhavan was set up in the memory of the country's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru
As per media reports BJP PM Modi government has decided a museum for all former prime minister of the country will be set up in the Teen Murti Bhavan

Last month, it was announced that a museum for all former prime ministers of the country will be built in the Teen Murti Bhavan complex housing the Jawaharlal Nehru memorial, director of the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, Shakti Sinha had said.
The decision was taken at the 43rd annual general meeting of the NMML chaired by Union home minister Rajnath Singh.
Singh's letter came following last month's reports saying that the government of India will set up a "Prime Ministers museum in the Teen Murti Bhawan.

This will certainly destroy the importance of Teen Murti Bhavan and will be a disrespect towards a great former prime minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru.

Respected Prime Minister,

The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library [NMML] is dedicated to the memory of India s first Prime Minister and prime architect of the Indian nation state who left behind an indelible imprint on our country and indeed on the world. His Distinctiveness and greatness have been acknowledged even by his political opponents and rivals. I recall that during the six year tenure of Shri. Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji as Prime Minister there was absolutely no attempt made to change the nature and character of the NMML and the Teen Murti comples in any way. But sadly , that seems to be part of the agenda of the Government of India now.

The NMML must remain a centre of first rate scholarship and professional excellence. The museum itself must retain its primary focus on Jawaharlal Nehru and the freedom movement because of his unique role having spent almost ten years in jail between the early 1920s and mid 1940s. No amount of revisionism can obliterate that role and his contributions

As Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji himself said in his moving speech to parliament when Panditjii  passed away, Such a resident may never grace Teen Murti again. That Vibrant personality , that attitude of taking even the opposition along, that refined gentelmanliness, that greatness we may not again see in the near future. In spite of a difference of opinion we have nothing but respect for his great ideals, his integrity , his love for the country and his indomitable courage.

Let us respect this sentiment and keep Teen Murti as a memorial to our first Prime Minister Pandit Nehru and leave the Teen Murti complex undisturbed as it is . This way we will be respecting both history and heritage.

Jawaharlal Nehru belongs not just to the Congress but to the entire nation. It is in this spirit that I have written to you.

With warm regards
Your sincerely
Manmohan Singh

Importance of Teen Murti Bhawan should be maintained and should not be made into Indian PM museum. It should remain Jawahar lal nehru museum only.
