A Life In Politics by P. A. Sangma
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


It traces his rise from a small tribal village in Meghalaya to the highest echelons of Indian democracy, profiling his contributions to Indian politics and development, and his unrelenting fight for the protection of democratic institutions and the welfare of the common man. Almost all the important speeches of Sangma delivered in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha have been incorporated here, besides his rulings as the Speaker, Lok Sabha, the speeches delivered by him at national and international conferences and seminars, and his midnight speech in the Central Hall of Parliament on the golden jubilee of India's Independence. These speeches reflect the vision and the concern of the eminent parliamentarian for the development of the country and its citizens.
