The Congress Misrule and the Swatantra Alternative was written by Swatantra Party MP, M.R. Masani and published in 1966. The book is a compilation of MR Masani’s speeches that shed light on the Swatantra Party’s stance and their goal of providing the people with a better government than the ruling party, at the time, was able to. It sets out to provide solutions to the basic social and economic problems in the country, by systematically covering the issues of tax, peasantry, workers’ rights, foreign aid and the devalued rupee. The books end by making a strong case for liberal democracy and the urgent need to adopt the same.
