A gripping tell-all about one of the tallest politicians in present-day India, the book chronicles Rajnath Singh’s career spanning nearly fifty years, during which he played a significant role in shaping the history of this country.  

 

Rajnath Singh rose from being a humble swayamsevak in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, and even served as a cabinet minister in the Vajpayee government. Jailed during the Emergency, Singh was the president of the BJP’s youth wing, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha. A two-term president of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Singh witnessed the elevation of Narendra Modi as the party’s prime ministerial candidate and delivered BJP’s biggest election victory in 2014. Since then, as India’s home minister, he has ushered in a new phase in the country’s security where both internal and external threats have been minimized. Under Singh, the threats from Naxalites and Maoists have significantly decreased and the state of Jammu and Kashmir saw its first local body elections in over a decade.
