The book written on Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge was released by former party president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday. The name of the book is Mallikarjun Kharge: Political Engagement with Compassion, Justice and Inclusive Development.

Amidst the election atmosphere, the book written on Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has been launched today. The book was released by former Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Kharge has been in politics for 5 decades. This book has come out on this occasion. In this book, Sonia Gandhi emphasised Kharge’s efforts to “empower the weak”, while Rahul Gandhi emphasised the Congress President’s specialty of “putting the organisation above his personal interest”.

CPM leader Sitaram Yechury, RJD leader Manoj Jha and DMK leader TR Baalu were present on the stage at the launch of this book edited by Sukhdev Thorat and Chetan Shinde at Jawahar Bhawan in Delhi.



On this occasion, Sonia Gandhi has praised Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge. The same Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has given the message of preparation for Mission 2024 while emphasising on opposition unity.

In the book, Kharge questioned K. Chandrashekhar Rao on ‘breaking’ the promise of a Dalit CM, while Kharge highlighted Sonia Gandhi’s efforts to “empower the weakest and most vulnerable”. At the same time, it is written that Rahul Gandhi “highlighted the rare quality of “putting the organisation above his personal interest”, which “inspired many people to fight the good fight.”al

Kharge won the party’s top post by defeating his rival Shashi Tharoor in the internal elections on October 19, 2022, in which over 9,000 delegates from across the country voted. He took charge on 26 October.

Kharge became a non-Gandhi party chief after a gap of 24 years. The Congress got its last non-Gandhi president in 1996, when Sitaram Kesri was elected to the top post of the party by defeating Sharad Pawar and Rajes Pilot.
