The memoir, titled ‘The Presidential Years’, will be released globally in January 2021, publisher Rupa Books announced on Friday. The fourth volume of Mukherjee’s memoir recounts the challenges he faced as president, including the tough decisions taken by the president and the drastic steps he took, to ensure that both constitutional justification and his opinion Was taken into consideration.
Pranab Mukherjee wrote in the book that some Congress leaders had told me that if I had become the PM in the year 2004, the Congress would not have to face such a terrible defeat in 2014. Pranab da further writes that although I do not believe so, but I definitely believe that the party lost its focus after I became President, on the one hand Sonia Gandhi was not able to handle the affairs of the party and on the other, the then Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh’s direct absence from the House in Parliament had severed direct contact with MPs.
