In Memoir, Pranab Mukherjee blames Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi for poll defeat.

NEW DELHI.11th Dec.

Former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee’s memoir, The Presidential Years is all set for release in January 2021. Amid lots of election losses suffered by the Congress and huge criticisms by its own top leadership, it is expected that this book will throw more light on the truth. Pranab Mukherjee is his memoir blames former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi for the debacle of Congress in 2014 polls.

Dr. Pranab Mukherjee in his memoir, The Presidential Years, writes “Some members of Congress had theorized that had I become the PM in 2004, the party might have averted the 2014 Lok Sabha drubbing. Though I don’t subscribe to this view, I do believe that the party’s leadership lost political focus after my elevation as the President. While Sonia Gandhi was unable to handle the affairs of the party, Dr. Manmohan Singh’s prolonged absence from the House put an end to any personal contact with other MP’s.”

The book also compares former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and the present Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. In his memoir he also writes “I believe that the moral authority to govern vests with the PM. The overall state of the nation is reflective of the functioning of the PM and his administration. While Dr. Singh was preoccupied with saving the coalition, which took a toll on governance, Modi seemed to have employed a rather autocratic style of governance during his first term, as seen by the bitter relationship among the government, the legislature and the judiciary. Only time will tell if there is a better understanding on such matters in the second term of this government.”
