New Delhi, July 31 IANS | 2 months ago

Congress President Sonia Gandhi Thursday refuted the allegations made by former Congress leader Natwar Singh's in a book and said she would write her own book to tell the truth.


"I will write my own book and then everyone will know the truth," Sonia Gandhi told TV news channel NDTV.

"The only way the truth will come out is if I write. I am serious about this," she said.

Natwar Singh, a former minister in the UPA government, alleged in an interview that Sonia Gandhi's decision not to take up the post of prime minister in 2004 was not because of an "inner voice" as she had famously said.

The former Congress leader said it was because of opposition from her son Rahul Gandhi, who was reportedly worried that she would be assassinated like his father Rajiv Gandhi and grandmother, Indira Gandhi, both former prime ministers.

The Congress president also said she is "used to such attacks".

"I can't be hurt I have seen my mother in law riddled by bullets, my husband dead...I am far from getting hurt with these things...Let them continue to do this it will not affect me...They can continue to do this if they so please," she said.

Natwar Singh, 83, had to resign from the Congress-led coalition government in 2005 after allegations of corruption.
