Rao was sending a bigger political message. So I mentioned the resignation episode as part of the larger politics that was being played out at that time and not to get in details If you get in the details what Chidambaram said at the book launch was not correct The fact is that Chidambaram met Narasimha Rao along with his wife and explained what had happened And Narasimha Rao did not say anything Chidambaram thought that the issue has been resolved When he reached home he was told that his resignation had been accepted You see Rao used to play such games It was partly to send a message that no one should take him lightly Anyway I expected Chidambaram to be negative about Rao And I was not surprised Naresh Chandra was there and he did speak about his interaction with Rao and made an interesting point which many in the audience did not register (which I have also mentioned in the book): Rao’s address to the nation immediately after he became the PM He became PM on 21June and on 22June headdressed the nation I have quoted from the address His speech was written by Naresh Chandra In the speech Rao talked about economic reforms the need to tighten our belt He talked about opening up the economy The fact that this speech was not written by an economist like Manmohan Singh or Montek Singh Alhuwalia is important That speech was written by Naresh Chandra and some joint secretaries What Naresh Chandra wanted to say was that Rao knew what he wanted [We] knew what should be done As a cabinet secretary Chandra was briefing the press regularly and everyone was fully prepared for the change So he was saying give us some credit I do that in my book I give credit to IAS officers like Naresh Chandra AN Verma Suresh Mathur So you are saying that the script for economic reform was written by bureaucrats and politicians No I’m saying that a lot of people played important roles I don’t want to underplay the role played by the economists The fact remains that Rakesh Mohan wrote that note on industrial policy Similarly Montek Singh Ahluwalia wrote that paper on reforms when VP Singh was PM Manmohan Singh provided leadership as finance minister Dr Rangarajan was deputy governor; he played an important role So all of them played important roles I’m not denying that I’m just saying the popular thinking the pressin particular seems to project only economists as heroes I’m saying that this was not right Let us recognise the role of political leadership I’m just trying to be balanced Is that true then that the foundation of the reforms was laid down by the Chandra Shekhar government and Narasimha Rao walked in on it It is true If Chandra Shekhar had the majority he would have done the same thing as Rao However two important things that Rao did were not on Chandra Shekhar’s agenda: one devaluation of the rupee Chidambaram told me that then in fact Chandra Shekhar was very critical in Parliament when the rupee was devalued Devaluation of the rupee was very important for trade policy reform but Chidambaram had argued that Chandra Shekhar would not have done it Two Chandra Shekhar would not have gone in for de-licensing But the fact is that there was a programme with the International Monetary Fund which was being negotiated in December 1990 by Yashwant Sinha That programme required certain changes in policy which Chandra Shekhar would have had to do 1991 was the same period when VHP launched its movement of building the Ram Mandir In your book you have ignored that completely Was that deliberate Firstly my book is titled 1991 and all of this happened in 1992 So there was no question of my discussing these events I end with the first two months of 1992 because I had to mention the AICC election which happened in 1992 But in my book in the last chapter I have stated that Narasimha Rao had written a book on the way he saw the whole issue of Ayodhya and Babri Masjid He is the only Prime Minister who has written a book on a policy matter which he had dealt with PV Narasimha Rao PTI photo At the book launch everyone including you spoke of the Machiavellian streak in Rao But of late there have been attempts to praise him In 1996 he emerged as a villain of peace Why the recent attempts to praise him then Firstly when you say that he was seen as a Machiavellian figure I don’t see it as a criticism That is praise Politicians are supposed to Machiavellian You don’t succeed in politics unless you have that streak In fact I used to say that Manmohan Singh was Machiavellian For Manmohan Singh’s birthday I gifted him a copy of The Prince In one of his parliamentary speeches he even quoted from the book to defend one of its policies So when you say a PM is Machiavellian that is praise Second the way we saw him in 1996 was because the Congress party chose to put the entire blame of the Babri Masjid demolition and defeat on Rao This is what Rao had written in his book as well: that if things go wrong he would be blamed but if they go right the party would take credit?Chandra Shekhar.but not to his own set of facts. featuring three out-of-category climbs and ending with a treacherous descent to Chambery, water distribution and other applications.
