If I say that Mrs Sonia Gandhi ran a life insurance business from the Prime Minister’s House, which is not really as awful as it sounds because you have to do something with yourself even if you are the prime minister's daughter-in-law. But the catch in the LIC contract in operation then was that you had to be an Indian citizen to be an LIC agent. Well the LIC made a huge exception in Sonia Gandhi's case. However our clerks having been trained In the British tradition decided to enter it on file that Mrs Sonia Gandhi's nationality was not Indian. 5The story caused uproar with Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee himself placing the question before government in parliament. Within a week of the uproar Sonia Gandhi asked for and got an Indian passport. The allegation levelled then, as it is being levelled now, was that she did not really want to accept Indian citizenship but was forced to do so because of the embarrassment cause to her mother-in-law the then prime minister of India.
