When I was wondering what controversy would follow after attacks and counterattacks by our political ‘heroes’, M and M seem to have suddenly emerged on the national scene providing food for journalists who are ever hungry for breaking news. The first M brought out his wife from hibernation ending speculation regarding his personal life. Now Sanjay Baru, former media advisor to the Prime Minister has chosen to publish his book ‘Accidental Prime Minister—’ which projects ManMohan Singh in a very poor light. Ironically what the author highlights in his book which has made headlines in all the newspapers today appears like stale fish, an expression used by journalists for something already known. But what really makes news is our P.M.’s strong reaction saying in no uncertain terms that the book is a work of fiction, provoked by the author for being denied a post in the Government. I am Glad for once the P.M. has asserted himself!
I am sure the author and the publisher will have a great ‘commercial’ future making tons of money in the process.
