A release by the Press Information Bureau (PIB) on May 25 last year reported a high-powered function at Rashtrapati Bhavan where two books were released in the presence of the President; one of them was 'Mann Ki Baat': A Social Revolution on Radio by Rajesh Jain, a former aide to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The book is described as an analysis of the Prime Minister's weekly radio show, "Mann ki Baat". The second book was Marching with a Billion: Analysing Narendra Modi's Government in Mid-Term by journalist Uday Mahurkar. All routine, except for one detail. "Rajesh Jain had absolutely nothing to do with this book (on Mann ki Baat)," former union minister Arun Shourie told NDTV. "He (Jain) is my friend. He told me he had been dragged into the (book release) function, given a speech to read," said Mr Shourie. Rajesh Jain corroborated the former minister's claim. "I was not the author of 'Mann ki Baat' book and was surprised to see my name as author," Mr Jain told NDTV, speaking from Mumbai.
