Regarding the Kargil war, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee believed that the army chief of Pakistan had betrayed Nawaz Sharif. Vajpayee spoke to Sharif four or five times over the phone during the war to end this tension between India and Pakistan. This was revealed in Vajpayee’s new book ‘Vajpayee: The Years That Changed India’ by Shakti Sinha, who was Private Secretary for almost three and a half years.

Shakti Sinha, who was the secretary, revealed in his book
Sinha worked with the then Prime Minister Vajpayee as a private secretary, including the PMO, for many years. His book will be released on December 25 to mark the 96th anniversary of Vajpayee. Sinha is currently honorary director of Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Policy Research and International Studies at MS University, Vadodara.

He said that Vajpayee is remembered fondly today, but people do not know how much he had to struggle to form the government in 1998. Despite this, he made difficult decisions to conduct nuclear tests and extend a hand of friendship with Pakistan. He vigorously defended India on these issues, but then the Kargil war broke out. In his own government, he faced a lot of opposition.

Ambitious projects with lofty intentions too
Vajpayee, a two-time short-term and once full-time prime minister, was a sensitive poet. He also conducted the Pokran nuclear test with lofty intentions and envisaged an ambitious road project like the Golden Quadrilateral Plan. His concrete decisions led to many achievements in strategic and economic policies. After the Cold War, he corrected relations with the US due to misunderstandings and made him his close friend. His 300-page book has a total of 10 chapters.
