Rao’s private papers among book’s contents
Published by Penguin Random House and due for release on the 25th anniversary of the 1991 “reform” budget, academic and journalist Vinay Sitapati’s book also examines Narasimha Rao’s suspicions that Sonia was keen to supplant him as PM and the deterioration of their relationship as documented by the terse tenor of Sonia’s letters to Rao after 1993. This was when she began to back Congress dissident Arjun Singh and N D Tiwari against Rao. The book also records Rao’s own subtle attempts to sideline Sonia.
“I was inspired by a book I read on Deng Xiaoping and the transformation of China in the 1980s,” Sitapati told TOI. Sitapati was given access to cartons of Rao’s papers by the ex-PM’s family. “It was important to me that the family does not control what I write. Which is why I have been able to write about Rao’s strengths as well as his flaws,” he said.
