Prakash Javadekar presents book 'Guru-Sangraha' to Shri Pranab Mukherjee

"Pranab knew I had no choice and any part in this decision", Manmohan Singh said. Dr Singh said that Pranab Mukherjee was a politician by choice and it came naturally to him. In the book, Mr Mukherjee says he had a "vague" feeling that Congress president Mrs Sonia Gandhi wanted to nominate Manmohan Singh as the UPA presidential candidate in 2012 and make him the Prime Minister. Pranab Mukherjee was thought to be the natural choice for the post after Sonia recused herself from the job after the principal opposition, BJP, created ruckus at her being from Italy.

Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar here on Thursday presented to former President Pranab Mukherjee an anthology of his convocation addresses as the Head of State. His autobiography is titled Coalition Years 1996 to 2012 and released today at the Nehru Memorial Museum Library, Delhi.

Mukherjee said in the book he has described the coalition years and tried not to bring in any personal matters.

"Therefore that smoothened our relationship".

The book being published by Rupa Publications tracks Mukherjee's journey from 1996 and explores the highs and lows that characterized 16 years of "one of the most tumultuous periods in the nation's political history", according to the synopsis. He is the greatest politician living in the country.

Singh described Mukherjee and NCP chief Sharad Pawar as respected senior members of his government both of whom were of great calibre.

While Sonia Gandhi and Rahul did not speak nor sit on the dais, a number of leaders including CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI Secretary Sudhakar Reddy, SP leader Akhilesh Yadav and DMK leader Kanimozhi spoke.

"So before the elections, we have got this book on coalition governments which may come handy", he said.
