New Delhi: After stirring up a hornet’s nest by revealing a lot in his autobiography `One Life Is Not Enough`, Natwar Singh on Saturday targeted Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh who have called the book a mere publicity gimmick.
Responding to Manmohan Singh`s remarks, Natwar Singh said that he did not expect a balanced person like the former PM to make a statement that he wrote the book for cheap publicity.

Natwar Singh, who seems to be in no mood to spare anyone loyal to the Congress High Command, also took a jibe at Singhvi`s involvement in a controversial video.
“What will Singhvi call the video in which he was found in a compromising position?” said Natwar Singh.
He added, “Singhvi has forgotten that Congress is also mentioned in the Volcker report as a non-contractual beneficiary.”
Yesterday, Manmohan Singh had said that the release of Natwar Singh`s book was a bid to market his product. Meanwhile, he also dismissed any claims that PMO files were sent to Sonia Gandhi for approval.
"This is their way of trying to market their product," Manmohan Singh told PTI.
On the other hand, Singhvi had said that the party can understand Natwar Singh`s hatred against the Gandhi family as he was made to resign from the Cabinet after an adverse Volcker report came out against him.
