After Nehru’s death in 1964, Kamaraj successfully navigated the party through turbulent times. As president of the INC, he refused to become the next prime minister himself and was instrumental in bringing to power two Prime Ministers, Lal Bahadur Shastri in 1964 and Nehru’s daughter Indira Gandhi in 1966. For this role, he was widely acclaimed as the “KINGMAKER” during the 1960s.
