He did hold good amount of Political Power in India. However he was representing only a smaller part of the Indian Society. To be noted is the fact that his Political Party has not dominated the political arena in the state without the BJP.

I guess the State Govt was too generous with the offering

A Big NO from my side.

21 gun salute given to person on his death he never knows that this for him it is for the followers to enjoy the salute and not for the person who is dead So people take the salute & hear the sound of guns.

Yes, of course. The State Govt. has not done anything more than what he deserved. He was a great man, a great patriot, a great leader, a great Saint, a real God father of common people. No one could ignore him in his life time. He was not a Hypocrit like all other politicians of this Country. After Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, I could not find any such Warrior in our Country. Our Country would have been benefitted a lot if he could have been the PM of India. I pay my respect to his departed Soul.
