The Accidental Prime Minister Ebook

Sanjay Baru's book is very much in the news these last couple of days. Its an interesting read and here is the PDF version just for you. In April , Penguin India published The Accidental Prime Minister Baru's tell- all memoir about his time at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). The Accidental Prime Minister is Baru's account of what it was like to 'manage' public opinion for Singh while giving us a riveting look at Indian politics as it.

Singh offered him the job with the words, 'Sitting here, I know I will be isolated from the outside world. I want you to be my eyes and ears. Tell me what you think I should know, without fear or favour. The Accidental Prime Minister is Baru's account of what it was like to 'manage' public opinion for Singh while giving us a riveting look at Indian politics as it happened behind the scenes. As Singh's spin doctor and trusted aide for four years, Baru observed up close Singh's often troubled relations with his ministers, his cautious equation with Sonia Gandhi and how he handled the big crises from managing the Left to pushing through the nuclear deal. In this book he tells all and draws for the first time a revelatory picture of what it was like for Singh to work in a government that had two centres of power. Insightful, acute and packed with political gossip, The Accidental Prime Minister is one of the great insider accounts of Indian political life and a superb portrait of the Manmohan Singh era. I have come to terms with this. There cannot be two Centres of power. The book that made Manmohan Singh interesting for me and has forever changed my impression of him.

In practice, this meant that he turned a blind eye to the misdeeds of his ministers.

He expected the Congress party leadership to deal with the black sheep in his government, just as he expected the allies to deal with their black sheep. While his conscience was always clear with respect to his own conduct, he believed everyone had to deal with their own conscience. That is how my forefathers lived.

The Accidental Prime Minister

That is how I want our grandchildren to live. A standing ovation followed.

I am only doing my work. You just write my speeches for me. I do not want any media projection. The book starts with the detailing of Manmohan singh as to how he started his career and ideation as why he was appointed as prime minister for 2 duration when the congress party was the ruling party.

Manmohan an economics graduate who had returned from cambridge after his graduation , was working in Delhi School of Economics for a while. Then he went to become the secretary to the finance minister and he was encouraged to join the government by one of former student Mr Isher Montex. Manmohan singh was known as man of few words and his work loud enough to prove his talent and work.

But there are lot twist and turns that happens in our life that makes that there enough Drama.

He is one of the best economist and Finance minister that the country, but not a strong leader who create huge impact among Indian citizens and does not fit the role of PM. First term of rule is credited to be a good one , but they spiraled downwards when they put tight spot in various corruption cases which are still impending in the court.

Sanjaya Baru the author was appointed as media advisor to PM by Manmohan Singh himself and therefore had direct and easy access to the PM. He handled dealing with issuing any statement regarding any issues, Resolving the controversies and thus the end to end process of handling the media and in the process handling the issues internally with the minister where his role played a important part.

My understanding till now based on the reading , Manmohan singh was just face of the congress party. To get the free app, enter your mobile phone number.

Baru's book, although promoted as a political gossipy narrative by the publishers Penguin , it is much more than that. It reveals much about the effects of the inner workings of the UPA-1 regime, without overtly giving away any confidential 'official secrets'.

Cleverly done.
