Author of "Accidental Prime Minister: The making and unmaking of Manmohan Singh" is ___?
The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh is a 2014 memoir by Indian policy analyst Sanjaya Baru, who was Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's media advisor from May 2004 until August 2008.
Published by Penguin India, the book alleges that Singh was not entirely in control of his cabinet—or even the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). Instead, significant power was wielded by the Congress party's president Sonia Gandhi, to whom Singh was completely "subservient".
In the book, Baru says PM Singh was defanged in his second term in office and quotes Dr. Singh as having told him that there cannot be two centres of power-an obvious reference to Congress president Sonia Ghandi.
