What Sanjaya Baru said about his book 'The Accidental Prime Minister'

A book by a former advisor to the Prime Minister, Sanjaya Baru has ruffled the feathers in the top echelons of the Congress. Baru, in his book 'The Accidental Prime Minister', has written that PM Manmohan Singh surrendered to pressure from Congress president Sonia Gandhi and allies.

Baru has written that Singh was "defanged" by the Congress in his second term with Sonia Gandhi deciding on key appointments to the Cabinet and to the PMO, as he seemed to "surrender" to her and to the allies.
