In an uncharacteristically candid speech, the reserved Manmohan Singh opened up about his relationship with his colleague and former President Pranab Mukherjee over the course of the Congress-led UPA's ten-year regime.
'He had every reason to feel a grievance that he was better qualified than I was to be PM, but he also knew I had no choice in the matter, ' ANI quoted Singh as saying.
Recollecting a conversation with Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, the former President pointed out that though Sonia admitted that Dr Manmohan Singh was the most suitable to be the President, she had reminded him of the crucial role he was playing in the functioning of the government and how he was needed there. "I took note of the fact that he was one of the senior most members of our party, was my senior most colleague and together with Sharad Pawarji and Pranab Mukherjeeji, I had the greatest regard and respect", he said during the launch. "I became a politician by accident when P V Narasimha Rao asked me to become the Finance Minister", he said.
