It was said of Indira Gandhi that she was ‘the only man in her cabinet’. Here she is in a meeting, surrounded by MLAs from Gujarat who had come to her with a proposal. RK Dhawan, who was Mrs Gandhi’s personal secretary, used to be the guy who handled everything for her. Whatever anybody’s agenda, he would help them, he was the middleman between the Congressmen and Mrs Gandhi. And you can see how he, too, is waiting along with all the Congressmen for the Big Boss to sanction papers.0
