So it wasnt the “inner voice” after all..

It was pretty much known earlier too that it was definitely no “inner voice” that led Sonia Gandhi to refuse the PM ship that evening in 2004, right after her party, Congress, had smashed BJP, stunning pretty much everyone in the process and rode to power. 

Now, Natwar Singh, erstwhile Gandhi family loyalist, in his book (everybody seems to be writing a book these days and to Congresss’ chagrin, they are at the receiving ends of most), claims that it was Rahul Gandhi’s veto that led to Sonia declining the PM chair and installing Manmohan Singh, in her place.
