Pranab da’s book also contains many things about the working style of the country’s current Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

  • Written – Modi should also listen to the voice of disagreement
  • Former President Pranab Mukherjee’s book ‘The Presidential Years’ hit the market

Former President Pranab Mukherjee’s book ‘The Presidential Years’ hit the market on Tuesday. It has another shocking claim. According to this, ‘Nepal wanted to become the province of India. But the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru turned down this proposal of King Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah of Nepal. Nehru’s response to this was that Nepal is an independent nation. He should always remain like this. Pranab further writes, “If Indira Gandhi had been replaced by Pandit Nehru, she might have taken advantage of the opportunity as she did with Sikkim.” In his book, there are many things about the working style of the current Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

For example- Pranab writes in one place, ‘Prime Minister Narendra Medi should also listen to the voice of disagreement. They should speak more in the Parliament to persuade the Opposition and present their case before the country. Only the absence of Modi can bring a lot of change in the work of Parliament. Former Prime Ministers- Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee or Manmahan Singh, all have made their presence felt in Parliament. In his second term, Prime Minister Mendi should take inspiration from him and increase his presence in Parliament. According to the book, ‘Modi government could not run the parliament smoothly in its first term.

The reason for this is his arrogance and inefficiency. ‘ In this sequence, further reads, ‘Modi announced demonetisation on 8 November 2016. But before this, I (then Pranab was the President) did not discuss this issue. However, this did not surprise me because contingency is necessary for such a declaration. ‘ The former president has shared his experience in writing, ‘I used to be in constant touch with the opposition during the United Progressive Alliance government. Used to run parliament. There was absence in the houses all the time.

Congress did not know that the charismatic leadership was over

Pranab wrote, ‘I think the Congress lost political focus after I became President. The party could not recognize that its charismatic leadership was over. This must have been one of the reasons for his defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha. Those results brought me relief that a decisive mandate came. But my party was disappointed with the performance of the Congress.
