My Years with Rajiv and Sonia written by R.D. Pradhan

May 8, 2014 13:21 IST

A book My Years with Rajiv and Sonia written by R.D.Pradhan released on 27 March 2014. R.D.Pradhan has penned his work experiences with Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi in his book.

Pradhan who was associated with Rajiv after Indira Gandhi’s assassination shares how Rajiv had tackled crucial situations like terrorism and the separatist movement in the Punjab and festering insurgency in Mizoram. He also narrates his associations with Sonia Gandhi and her career. He shreds light on how the Sonia emerged as a formidable force to reckon with.

About the author

R.D.Pradhan has been the Union home-secretary and Governor of Arunachal Pradesh. After retiring as home secretary, Pradhan worked as a close aide to Rajiv Gandhi during his last election campaign in April-May 1991.

After Rajiv Gandhis brutal assassination (on 21 May 1991), the author recounts his vital role in P.V. Narasimha Raos elevation as prime minister in late June 1991. Pradhan legitimately asks, on the basis of certain facts, whether the assassination could have been prevented. In the late 1990s and thereafter, the author was associated with Sonia Gandhi and her career.
