Former President Pranab Mukherjee was writing a book that chronicles his journey as India’s head of state in exhaustive detail and its release is planned on his birth anniversary later this year, publisher Rupa Publications said on Monday, August 31.
Titled ‘The Presidential Years’, this would be the fourth book to be authored by Mukherjee. Pranab Mukherjee passed away on August 31, 2020, at a hospital in New Delhi at the age of 84.
In a statement, the publisher has said that “This unique autobiographical account promises to give readers a bird’s eye view of the functioning of Rashtrapati Bhavan, the inside story of the issues that made headlines-from the imposition of President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh to demonetization. The book also talks about surgical strikes, his relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the NDA government and the functioning of the legislature, executive and the judiciary.”
The publisher further said that they are planning to release the book on his birth anniversary on December 11, 2020.
