Congress workers on Monday burnt the posters of Sanjay Baru, former media advisor of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, over the remarks made in his book.


The Congress workers also burnt the internet version of the book written by Baru.

The book titled the 'The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh' has evoked sharp reactions from Congress workers who claimed that the writer was "not correct with his facts".

Former district Congress president KK Bawa, senior Congress leader Amarjeet Singh Tikka, Ramesh Joshi, Sushil Molahotra and Usha Malhora led the protest against Baru and expressed their anger against him by burning his posters and book.

The leaders said the Congress party would not tolerate Baru's attempt to malign the image of Manmohan who has "played his part with honesty for the development of the country".

The leaders said the Prime Minster has worked for overall development of the country.

"From MGNREGA, Right to Information, Right to Education, Land acquisition law for farmers, Right to Food, providing health services at village level under National Rural Mission and many other rights, these are all due to Singh's efforts," said Bawa.
