Book by Subra­ma­nian Swamy’s wife has Delhi, BJP on ten­ter­hooks

Business Standard - - DEMOCRACY AT WORK -

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subra­ma­nian Swamy’s wife Roxna has writ­ten a book on her hus­band. It’s called Evolv­ing With Subra­ma­nian Swamy: A

Roller Coaster Ride. Much of Delhi and the BJP are await­ing the book with some trep­i­da­tion. Among other in­ci­dents, the book fea­tures Swamy’s re­turn from the US when the Emer­gency was on and his in­ter­jec­tion in the Ra­jya Sabha when he told the Chair, “You have made a no­table omis­sion in your obit­u­ary ref­er­ences, you have left out democ­racy from your list of the de­ceased.” The book will hit the stands on Sun­day. Some lead­ers are learnt to have sought ad­vance copies to see how they fea­ture and if they have been re­ferred to in the book.
