Late former President, Pranab Mukherjee’s autobiography was recently released officially and it has been leaving the readers emotional as it is full of bittersweet moments from his tenure as the President of India. In this last book, titled The Presidential Years- 2012-2017, the dignified personality has drawn comparisons between the current Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, and former Indian PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh. He has clearly stated in this book that the current government created history in 2014 by earning a landslide victory, which is not a common phenomenon in Indian politics. He has also spoken highly of Mr Narendra Modi’s ability to deal with foreign affairs, even though he did not have any prior experience in the field.

Here is a look at the ZEE5 video with details related to Dr. Pranab Mukherjee’s The Presidential Years:

The last part of Dr Pranab Mukherjee’s autobiography, The Presidential Years, has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced last year. Through this new segment of his autobiography, he has shared his experiences from the time he was serving as the President of India, between 2012 and 2017. He has drawn comparisons between Shri Narendra Modi and Dr Manmohan Singh and has stated that both these Prime Ministers came into power through polarised methods.

Dr Pranab Mukherjee, who passed away in August 2020, has mentioned that the PM post was offered to Manmohan Singh by Congress leader Sonia Gandhi while Narendra Modi earned his place through the general elections of 2014. He has also spoken about PM Narendra Modi’s growth as a Prime Minister. In this new book, he has mentioned that PM Modi had no experience with foreign affairs when he started off as the Prime Minister. He had only interacted with a few world leaders when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, which limited his knowledge in the field. However, Dr. Pranab Mukherjee has lauded his methods of dealing with foreign affairs even though he was new to it.

The former president also highlighted PM Modi’s swearing-in ceremony where he had invited a series of world leaders including Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, who was not exactly an ally for the country. This bold and thoughtful step put quite a few questions in the minds of the people, creating a sweet mystery that worked positively. Dr. Mukherjee also threw some light on the other side of the coin by criticizing PM Modi’s incorrect measures like demonetization and surgical strike.
