Son Abhijeet Mukherjee and daughter Sharmishtha Mukherjee have come face to face on the late President Pranab Mukherjee’s book ‘The Presidential Years’ to be published in January. Abhijit Mukherjee cited some media reports quoting his father’s memoirs as “inspiring” and urged the publisher to stop publishing until his written consent. However, Mukherjee’s daughter Sharmishtha objected to her brother’s statement that no attempt should be made to stop the publication of the book for cheap publicity.

Former MP Abhijit also said that he had written a letter to Rupa Prakashan, which was publishing the book, to stop publishing the book ‘The Presidential Years’. Abhijat tweeted, tagging Kapish Mehra, Rupa Publications and its managing director, “Being the son of the author of memoirs, I urge you all to come to this book and parts of the media without my consent.” Stop publishing inspired pieces.

He said my father is not in this world. In such a situation, I want to study the subject of the book because I believe that if my father were alive, he would have done the same. “In such a situation, I urge you all to stop publishing this book immediately without my written consent,” said the former Congress MP. I have already sent you a detailed letter about this.

Reacting to his brother’s tweet, Congress national spokesperson Sharmishtha Mukherjee said, “I, as the daughter of the author of the memoirs, urge my brother Abhijeet Mukherjee to unnecessarily obstruct the publication of the last book written by his father.” Do not He (Mukherjee) had already written before he fell ill.

There will be injustice with this father
Sharmishtha Mukherjee also said that the book is accompanied by notes and comments written by my father, which are strictly adhered to. The opinions expressed by him are his own and no one should try to stop him from publishing them for cheap publicity. This will be the greatest injustice to our late father.

In fact, according to excerpts from the book published in the media on behalf of the publication, Mukherjee mentions many things in his experiences as president and reference in the Congress leadership. According to public quotes, Mukherjee wrote that the Congress deviated from the political direction after he became President. For this reason, some party members believed that if he had become the Prime Minister in 2004, the Congress would not have suffered a crushing defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Mukherjee wrote memoirs ‘The Presidential Years’ before his death. Published by Rupa Publications, the book was to be available to readers from January 2021. Mukherjee died on July 1 at the age of 84 due to health complications following a corona virus infection.
