6) Rejection of Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) membership:
Immediately after India’s independence, US President John F. Kennedy had offered India the help of the Nuclear Test. But Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru rejected that offer. If India had accepted that proposal, then India would become the first Asian country to conduct the Nuclear Test. Along with this, India also became the member of NSG comfortably. Today, even after 70 years of independence, despite opposition from China, we have to roam around the world and lobbying for NSG.

In 1950, the US asked India to join India as a permanent member of the United Nations, but instead of joining, Nehru advised to take China to UN as a permanent member. America and Russia agreed again in 1955 and once again Nehru offered to come to the UN as a permanent member but this time also Nehru rejected it.
