Pranab Mukherjee would give only one answer when it came to electing him for the post of Prime Minister.


BanglaHunt Desk: Salta was 1984, the day was 31st October. The Indian Airlines flight from Kolkata to Delhi was attended by a number of dignitaries including Pranab Mukherjee, Rajiv Gandhi, Sheila Dikshit. Suddenly, at half past two, Rajiv Gandhi heard the news of Indira Gandhi's death from the cockpit of the plane. The shadow of mourning descends all over India.

Pranab Mukherjee broke down in tears as he could not control his grief. After a while, he got out of there, sat in the back seat of the plane and began to lighten his grief by crying invisibly. But it is heard that his opponents in the Congress have presented his behavior in a slightly different way. Which means he is conspiring against Rajiv Gandhi.

Later, when Rajiv Gandhi asked Pranab Mukherjee for his decision on the selection of the country's Prime Minister after completing all the final tasks of Indira Gandhi, he placed more emphasis on seniority. This decision was later presented as his wish to become the Prime Minister.

Indira Gandhi's Chief Secretary PC Alexander wrote his autobiography 'Through The Corridors of Power – An Insider’s Story“When it came to the decision to elect Rajiv Gandhi, Pranab Mukherjee was the first to strongly support it,” he wrote. But by then it was too late. After winning the election, Pranab Mukherjee did not have a place in Rajiv Gandhi's elected cabinet or even in the Congress party.

After leaving the Congress in 1986, he formed a separate party, the State Socialist Congress. When Sonia Gandhi elected Manmohan Singh as the Prime Minister of the country, for the second time this great man had to give up hope of becoming the Prime Minister of the country. But this great personality of India has never protested against this election.

This great man did not blame anyone but just said, ‘I have spent the lion’s share of my political life in the Rajya Sabha. I also have some problems speaking Hindi. Even in the home state, I have never been able to give victory to the Congress. ' Then one day he jokingly told the people around him, “The Prime Minister will come and go, but I will be the PM (Pranab Mukherjee) forever.”
