Book Review

The life of the 13th Prime Minister of India is fraught with constant conflict from both the opposing party and his own party. In this
book by his former spokesperson, the author puts forth the argument that Mr. Manmohan Singh is in a constant battle for power, as the principal portion of it rests with the Congress Party President, Sonia Gandhi. Portraying an empathic image of the Prime Minister, Baru’s book interprets the relationship between the two juggernauts of the Congress party as a tug of war, and portrays Mrs. Gandhi as the constant victor. Revealing several controversial details about the Congress Party, this book is sure to catch the eyes of readers and make them ask questions it tries to answer.
