Congress Party won the 2004 election with a thumping majority. Every one thought Congress President Sonia Gandhi to be the next Prime Minister then but all of sudden, Sonia Gandhi backtracked and made Man Mohan Singh who is not even a Lok Sabha MP as the Prime Minister. Like that Man Mohan happened to be Prime Minister twice (2004 and 2009). In his book, Sonia’s previous colleague and former Foreign Minister Natwar Singh made a sensational revelation that Rahul Gandhi stopped his mom from becoming the Prime Minister. It is said in the book that Rahul Gandhi feared that his mother will also be killed just like her father and grand mother so came along her way to the coveted post.

Sonia Gandhi who is at the center of all this remained mum over the issue. In an interview to a News channel, she did not decline the news but said that she is very soon planning her autobiography and will let every one know the facts. When the News channel asked Sonia if she is serious, the Congress President assured them that she is not joking. Natwar Singh had an unceremonious exit from the UPA Govt after the Volcker Committee Report on the Oil for Food scandal in 2005. He was later suspended from the Congress Party.
