Pranab Mukherjee wanted to become PM after Indira Gandhi's death but couldn't as Rajiv Gandhi was made PM in haste:…
Don't agree. Culture of corruption was started by Congress, boosted by Indira Gandhi & Pranab Mukherjee. Remember License Raj.

Apparently Indira Gandhi "recognised" this young man's (Pranab Mukherjee's) talents and introduced him to politics
Isnt it a tribute!!! In his last days as Finance Minister, Pranab Mukherjee cleared a proposal from Rural Affairs Minister Jairam Ramesh to set up a centre at Oxford University named after his political mentor Indira Gandhi. :)
In 1980, he was defeated by around 700 votes from Bholpur Loksabha Seat & yet he was made Union Minister by late Indira Gandhi. He was expelled from Congress by Rajiv Gandhi. He is supposed 2b the man behind meteoric rise of 1 industrialist. Yes, Pranab Mukherjee is all set 2 b the next resident of Raisina Hills. Opposition parties also wish that Sankatmochak of UPA should be out of Government. Good bye PM from active politics with an expectation that he will uphold democratic values in 2014.
Congratulations - Pranab Mukherjee! An interesting journey from cabinet minister in Indira Gandhi's govt in 1973 to 13th President of India
Pranab Mukherjee was a typical village guy but Indira Gandhi realized he has a sharp mind to be a top politician for a country like India.
Pranab Mukherjee born 11 December 1935) is the president-elect of India . Mukherjee was a senior leader of the Indian National Congress until he resigned from political office preceding his election as president on 22 July 2012. He will take office as the 13th President ofIndia on 25 July 2012. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] Mukherjee began his political career with the Indian NationalCongress in 1969 under PrimeMinister Indira Gandhi . He became one of her top lieutenants and was often described as her "man for all seasons". His rise was meteoric in the early phase of his career and he became a cabinet minister in Indira Gandhi's government in 1973. Mukherjee rose through a series of cabinet posts to become the Finance Minister ofIndia from 1982 to 1984. Mukherjee was Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha from1980 to 1985. [ 5 ] Mukherjee was sidelined from the Congress during the RajivGandhi era. He had viewed himself, and not the rookie Rajiv Gandhi, as the rightful successor to Indira Gandhi. [ 5 ] Mukherj ...
Pranab Mukherjee was advised by Mrs. Indira Gandhi to get a English tutor to discreetly brush up his pronunciation skills . He replied "Madam , I am a vernacular medium boy & I want to remain ths way to show vernacular medium people can also succeed in today's competitive world !" . She gave up . It is said she was like a doting elder sister to him but unfortunately after her demise Rajiv Gandhi & Arun Nehru brutally sacked him !! It was Narasimha Rao who rehabilitated him with the plum post of Deputy Chairman , Plannin' Commision .
By T V R Shenoy Pranab Mukherjee is following in the footsteps of Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and Giani Zail Singh. While several Presidents had served as ministers earlier in their careers, they were the only two to move directly from the Cabinet Room to Rashtrapati Bhavan and theirs were two of the most controversial tenures in the highest Constitutional post. Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed was perhaps the worst President ever to hold that office. Thirty-seven years ago, on or around midnight of June 25, 1977, Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed was woken up by a messenger sent by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi . He was told that there was an 'imminent danger to the security of India being threatened by internal disturbances', so grave that it could be settled only by declaring an Emergency. Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed signed on the dotted line without any qualms. The President's oath of office requires him or her to 'preserve, protect and defend the Constitution'. Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed, essentially, chose to preserve, protect and defend ...
Pranab Mukherjee in his stint as Indira Gandhi's Finance Minister had signed the letter appointing Dr. Manmohan Singh as Governor of RBI
Pranab Mukherjee on his bid for President: Highlights
I owe Indira Gandhi everything, she was my mentor: Pranab Mukherjee to NDTV: A day after former Finance Minister...
Indira Gandhi imposed emergency in India this day 37 yrs ago.Pranab Mukherjee was part of that dictatorship regime
Pranab Mukherjee to Sonia Gandhi would be as Jail Sing was to Indira Gandhi. History is goig to repeat .
Pranab Mukherjee, set to be India's next president, is a rare politician who has never been a mass leader but who commands the attention of the nation like few others in his tribe. It is a quality that is expected to stand him in good stead as he readies to step up into Rashtrapati Bhavan, the 340-room British-era presidential mansion sitting majestically atop Raisina Hill. Although the quintessential number two in the Congress-led government, the 76-year-old Mukherjee is a man of unparalleled experience who has the rare distinction of having served at different times as foreign, defence and Finance Ministers. He has presided over cabinet meetings when the prime minister has been away for the last 25 years, but somehow the top post has eluded him because of, what political observers widely feel, the wariness of the Gandhi family. That wariness goes back to the time after Indira Gandhi's assassination in October 1984 when Mukherjee, a stickler for rules, is supposed to have pointed out to her son Rajiv Gan ...
Why is Media not reporting Pranab Mukherjee was the brutus who passed info from Ajay Mukherjee's West Bengal govt. to Indira Gandhi!
No one has observed and worked with Indira Gandhi more keenly than Pranab Mukherjee. He met her first in 1969, and was her colleague during historic triumphs, trials and tribulations. He recalls aspects and events that embody the leader he admires most.
Pranab Mukherjee,shameless willing slave of Indira Gandhi bowed to her every moment repeating “India is Indira & Indira is India”.
Pranab Mukherjee upon oral instructions of Indira Gandhi & Sanjay Gandhi sent innocent men and women to Tihar Jail, and tortured them.
Pranab Mukherjee from the INDIRA Congress Party and Navin Chavla, later CEC from bureaucracy were two hatchet men of Sanjay Gandhi.
During the dark days of Emergency of Indira Gandhi from June 1975 to March 1977, Pranab Mukherjee was the biggest CHAMCHA of Sanjay Gandhi
Be it Pranab Mukherjee's announcement of austerity drive or Mamata Banerjee's claim of inheriting a cash strapped state; seeing all the advertisement splashes, there seems to be a hypocritical approach towards all the preaching. Politicians won't change and neither would politics as we continue to see the newspapers being splashed with Rajiv Gandhi's photographs and advertisements. The government had earlier spent Rs 7.25 crore on print advertisements on the birth anniversaries of former Rajiv and Indira Gandhi last year. Crores of Rupees go down the drain to appease a family and create back an image after the re-emerging of Bofors issue or maybe creating a platform for the next kin of Congress family. Similarly, while the Trinamool Congress-led government in West Bengal has been complaining of lack of funds due to the debt burden of over Rupees Two Lakh Crores, it spent Rupees 20 crore to celebrate the completion of one year in power. Not to be a loser, as per estimates, Rs 25 crores have been spent on t ...
Sonia Gandhi is no Indira Gandhi and Pranab Mukherjee is no Zail Singh. He should signal - Enough is enough.
Pranab Mukherjee was ousted from the Congress briefly after Indira Gandhi's death, He formed his own party 'Rashtriya Samajwadi Congress'
Pranab Mukherjee was the guy who thought that he was better placed than Rajiv Gandhi to replace Indira Gandhi in 1984:
