The Long March: Profile of Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar
Once the Father of the Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, aptly said that India would be safe in the hands of Jawaharlal Nehru. Today the same is true of Chandra Shekhar who has taken over the reigns of India in his hands, in the best Gandhian and Nehruvian spirit and tradition. A staunch socialist he has experience of more than four decades of active politics. He had struggled for years for principles, while others had managed to stick to chair. He is old in years, but young in ideas. What is politics and what are values, for Chandra Shekhar? Did Congress use Chandra Shekhar to bring down National Front Government? Chandra Shekhar’s main difficulty does not emanate from the numerical weakness of his group, it flows from the limited talent available to him for manning the government efficiently. Chandra Shekhar has the advantage of having shared ideals with the Congress ideology. His championship of secularism, socialism and commitment to economic uplift of the country place him close to the Congress principles-he was a prominent member of the Congress Party at one time. Will Chandra Shekhar act on lines of his predecessor? Will he be allowed to solve the unsolved issues? His critical attitude to multinationals may not come in the way of the needed changes in industrial policy in the government will be required to clear internal problems, promote national international and restore India’s image abroad. This book examines the plus and minus points of Chandra Shekhar, the man and the leader. This book provides a masterly analysis of his life-sketch with facts and figures. Certainly this study with biographical spice would be of interest to readers.
