Rajiv Gandhi sent troops to SL without consulting Cabinet-Video
Estranged Gandhi family loyalist Natwar Singh in an interview claimed former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi sent troops to Sri Lanka without consulting his Cabinet.
He added that the Sri Lankan issue was mishandled which resulted in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.
In the interview, Natwar also claimed it was Rahul Gandhi's ultimatum to "do anything" that prevented Sonia from taking up the post of prime minister in 2004, contradicting the Congress chief's 2004 claim that she was following her "inner voice" in renouncing the high office.
Natwar Singh said Rahul Ghandi was totally against her mother becoming Prime Minister.
He said she would be killed like his father and grandmother and as a son he would not allow her to become the Prime Minister.
