AGARTALA, Sep 14 (TIWN): Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy's book on Dr Syama Prasad MUkerjee even though was brought under controversy alleging Roy is trying to reverse the Freedom-movement history, Penguin-Random House has picked up his book for publication.

Amidst strong objection from Congress, CPI-M to credit Mukharjee as a great Freedom Fighter, thousands of greetings are welcoming Roy's book.

Tathagata Roy also tweeted, "My book "The Life and Times of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee" has been picked up by Penguin-Random House for publication".

Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee (1901-1953) was a multifaceted personality—educationist, patriot, statesman, parliamentarian, a person of incredible courage and a great humanitarian. In a life of less than fifty-two years and in politics for just fourteen of them, he had risen to be a Union cabinet minister in Free India’s first cabinet, and had thrown away that portfolio upon developing serious differences with Jawaharlal Nehru over the pogrom of the Hindu minority in East Pakistan.

Before that he had been the driving force behind the creation of West Bengal and East Punjab by snatching these parts from Jinnah’s Pakistan. After resigning his cabinet berth he founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, which later metamorphosed itself into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of today. 
This volume is a well-researched and complete biography of this great son of motherland India which gives an insight into his inspiring life.
