According to party insiders, the reports regarding the contents of Frank's biography have "rattled" the Congress president and her loyalists, especially as it has come close on the heels of another personal slur: the cbi's chargesheeting of Sonia's personal secretary, Vincent George.

The immediate reactions emanating from the loyalists as well as the family was that "something ought to be done about the book". And Congress insiders say it is the loyalists who seem more perturbed than Sonia. As an immediate reaction, Congressmen in Maharashtra burnt copies of Outlook, which was the first to report on Frank's account of Indira Gandhi's love life (Mrs G's String of Beaus, March 26).
