Meanwhile, the leader of the Gujarat Congress, Hardik Patel, recognized Dr. Singh for good governance and the strengthening of the Indian economy during his tenure as the country’s prime minister.
“Happy birthday to the great economist, former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. May God keep you healthy and give you longevity. Thanks to Dr. Saheb, the country became financially stronger, today the public remembers the strong good governance of Manmohan Singh. Jai Ho, “he tweeted in Hindi.
Born in Gag, now Pakistan, on September 26, 1932, Dr. Singh is credited with introducing radical reforms in 1990. He was Prime Minister for 10 years until Congress was decimated by the BJP in 2014 and the Prime Minister Modi took power for the first time.
Manmohan Singh, who was the first Sikh in office, was also the first prime minister since Jawaharlal Nehru to be re-elected after completing a full five-year term. Singh’s political career began in 1991 when he was appointed the country’s Finance Minister under the leadership of the late Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao. It was the same year that he helped usher in the “liberalization and privatization” of the Indian economy.
