Storyline

Based on the memoir by Indian policy analyst Sanjaya Baru, The Accidental Prime Minister explores Manmohan Singh's tenure as the Prime Minister of India, and the interference of Congress Party in contradicting his decisions during his first tenure. He details how Singh fell a victim to Congress Party's dynastic approach. It highlights how Manmohan Singh was constantly ignored by Congress to maintain turf for Rahul Gandhi, the son of Sonia Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Written by guptashaurya-54306
