The most interesting part of the book is his 90-minute interview with Priyanka Gandhi on March 19, 2008. Insisting that she and her husband had no knowledge of Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination plot, Nalini told Priyanka Gandhi that the situation had made her a prisoner. Nalini’s book has been very controversial, but it can be used as an important document in the investigation of the Rajiv Gandhi assassination.

Rajiv Massacre: Nalini’s party
Nalini has told the story of the day of Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination from her own party, according to her, she had no knowledge of the conspiracy. Nalini said that on May 21, 1991, she went with Shubha and Dhanuni to Rajiv Gandhi’s meeting in Sriperumbudur. Shubha was the daughter of Shivarasan’s uncle, known as the mastermind of the attack and a LTTE spy.

Nalini said she was to meet her husband in Royapetta after returning from the meeting. Nalini said, “Apart from all these plans, I was very excited about Rajiv Gandhi’s meeting. I wanted to see a great leader and former prime minister up close. ‘

At seven in the morning, Nalini had reached the meeting place with Shubha and Dhanu (human bomb). It was not very crowded at that time and after a while people started gathering at the meeting place. Nalini said, “Then we saw that Dhanu and Shivarasan were not walking with us. I turned back to see them. They were both fighting with each other. I could not hear them. When I asked Shubha about it, she said that everything is normal. “They’ll both be with us in a little while,” he said.

Sagittarius entered the VIP area
“Now we were confused as to how to cross the crowd and go to the VIP area,” Nalini said. But things were moving very fast. Shivarasan was acquainted with all the important people there and was talking to them with a smile. He then took Sagittarius alone to the VIP area. Shubha and I went to the women’s area. There was a musical program going on, which was being performed by music director Shankar-Ganesh. ‘

Nalini said, “The crowd was very excited about Rajiv Gandhi. A heavy police force was deployed in the VIP area. Congress leaders said that Rajiv Gandhi is coming soon. Like everyone else I also went to get a glimpse of them. It was 10.15 in the morning. Rajiv Gandhi was chanting the slogans of Zindabad. Because of the huge crowd, I had no idea what was going on. People said that Gandhi had got out of his car and was now going to garland the statue of Indira Gandhi. ‘

Good luck pulling back the stage
Nalini further said, “Rajiv Gandhi was announced to arrive in a few minutes, but nothing was visible from where we were standing. I asked Shubha to go ahead so that nothing could be seen, but Shubha refused. He grabbed my hand and pulled me behind the stage. I asked him what’s the matter? All he said was, ‘Nothing, shut up.’

‘Then she pulled me further back. I felt like she was taking me to the stage some other way, because there was so much crowd. He held my hand very tightly. I kept going with him. “I found out later that there was a message in the strong grip of his hand, which I failed to understand at the time,” Nalini said.

Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in a suicide attack at a rally on May 21, 1991. At least 15 people, including a suicide bomber, were killed in the attack.
