Modi government revels in the past, Kapil Sibal in new book


IANS New Delhi
Congress MP Kapil Sibal will be releasing a new book titled "Shades of Truth: A Journey Derailed", arguing that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government "revels in the past" and debunking the claim of "Acche Din" that the BJP made in the run up to 2014 general elections.
To be published by New Delhi-based Rupa Publications in September, the available details on the book note that the people of India seemed to have embraced the winds of change in the anticipation of "Acche Din".
"But as the NDA Government under the leadership of Narendra Modi seeks a 'Congress Mukt Bharat' and attempts to tackle all the issues for which it blamed previous governments, we must pause and reflect on the journey thus far; what lies ahead and on the gap between the promised change and delivery on the ground," Sibal said in a statement on the book.
The publisher added that in "Shades of Truth" Sibal will be examining "the many actions of the Modi government since 2014" and will lay bare how his government "revels in the past without seeking to grapple with the problems of the present and prepare for future challenges".
"Apart from his reflections on diverse topics and contemporary concerns, Sibal also reflects on the policy decisions of the UPA government in sectors as diverse as telecom, education, science and technology, and law," the publisher added.
Kapil Sibal is a Harvard law School graduate, an eminent lawyer, and a Member of Rajya Sabha. In the past he has served as the Union Cabinet Minister, holding several portfolios.
