Can Congress Really claim Legacy Over Sardar Patel?

Now let us Flip Through History Pages
Not the History written by Congress,  Manish Tiwari, Or Dr Manmohan Singh
(Part - 1) 

1. This is not the first time that someone has said that Patel would have been a better Prime Minister than Nehru. C.Rajagpolachary, who was the Governor General of India said If Nehru was Foreign Minister and Patel the Prime minister, it would be undoubtedly better.
Pandit Nehru, C. Rajagopalachary, Sardar Patel

2. The legacy of the great national leaders is not the property of a single political party.

3- The Indian National Congress ,per-independence was a vehicle in which people of many political hues participated in their quest for freedom.

4- The legacy of those leaders belong to the entire nation and not to one political party.

5- It is for this reason that Mahatma Gandhi resolved to disband the Congress after Independence.

Mahatma Gandhi wrote " Though split into two, India having attained political independence through means provided by the Indian National Congress, the Congress in its present shape and form, i.e., as a propaganda vehicle and parliamentary machine, has outlived its use. India has still to attain social, moral and economic independence in terms of its seven hundred thousand villages as distinguished from its cities and towns. The struggle for the ascendancy of civil over military power is bound to take place in India's progress towards its democratic goal. It must be kept out of unhealthy competition with political parties and communal bodies. For these and other similar reasons, the A. I. C .C. resolves to disband the existing Congress organization and flower into a Lok Sevak Sangh under the following rules, with power to alter them as occasion may demand.

(*Gandhiji's idea of a transformed Congress was published in Harijan under the title "His Last Will and Testament". Also published in 'The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi - Volume 90', published by the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting's publication division in 1984).

Can the Congress leaders explain why Mahatma Gandhi who as per them is the sole architect of freedom was completely ignored in this essential point ? Does it not show the power-hungry nature of Nehru and his ilk ?
5. Let us now come to Dr.Manmohan Singh's certificate of Sardar Patel that he is indeed a secularist. The only certificate of "Secularism" in India must come from the Congress because they own the meaning of this word. " Secularism" in Bharat i.e., India means the opposite of what it is worldwide.

In his book " With No Ill-Feeling to Anybody", Sri MKK Nair, an IAS officer of the 1947 batch who was close both to Sardar and VP Menon,writes...

 "Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the then Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister of India, was insulted, humiliated and disgraced by the then Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, during a Cabinet meeting. 

 “You are a complete communalist and I’ll never be a party to your suggestions and proposals,”Nehru shouted at Patel during a crucial Cabinet meeting to discuss the liberation of Hyderabad by the Army from the tyranny of the Razakkars, the then Nizam’s private army.

A shocked Sardar Patel collected his papers from the table and slowly walked out of the Cabinet room. That was the last time Patel attended a Cabinet meeting. He also stopped speaking to Nehru since then.”
So RSS is not the only one that Nehru called communal. He had those kind words for his own then Dy.Prime Minister, Sardar Patel.
