Based on the television series Ji Pradhanmantriji, an adaptation of the immensely popular yes prime Minister books, this is a perceptive and very funny spoof of the way politics works in India.The second volume of Ji Pradhanmantriji begins with a fresh crisis: Talibanled extremists are attempting a takeover in the Maldives and the prime Minister must deal with the situation tactfully. The problem has only just been swept under the carpet when Suryaprakash Singh is called upon to adjudicate on an even more sensitive matter- the appointment of the chairman of the Sripati Devasthan Temple Trust. As he is congratulating himself on resolving the crisis and winning the party some votes in marginal constituencies, Suryaprakash is told that recently discovered documents proved that the ex-director of RAW was a Pakistani spy, and that the defense of the realm is in peril as a result…Between saving a pet dog that has run loose in the Jabalpur Ordnance factory minefield and suppressing the former Pradhanmantri’s incriminating memoirs, Suryaprakash is kept busy, while the Cabinet Secretary Rajnath Mathur continues to spin his web of red tape around each and every project.
