Quick Overview

Hachette 24 Akbar Road

With 24 Akbar Road as the most apt and brilliant title to his book, Rasheed Kidwai has presented the story of Congress party’s evolution to the dispassionate readers. From the days of Indira Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, P. V. Narasimha Rao and Sitaram Kesari, the party has seen some strong leaders who have lead the nation for many years. And after Sonia Gandhi turned down the prime-minister post, Dr. Manmohan Singh has led Congress party into two consecutive terms of ruling. In this updated and revised edition, the author has also tried to analyse the elevation of Rahul Gandhi’s position as the vice president of Congress. He attempts to evaluate if Rahul would be able to lead the Congress party to a third successive term of rule at the centre. Rasheed’s objective narration of the past stories and the contemporary developments of the Congress party is extremely compelling.
