PM Modi wished former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh a happy 91st birthday on September 26.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi honored his predecessor Manmohan Singh on the day of the Congress leader’s 91st birthday on Tuesday.
Singh, who was born in 1932 in what is now Pakistan, was India’s prime minister from 2004 to 2014.
Modi wrote on X, “Birthday wishes to former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh Ji.” I wish him a long and healthy life.”
Singh, who was finance minister under then-prime minister P V Narasimha Rao from 1991 to 1996, is acknowledged with being a main architect of the government’s economic reforms that shattered the stranglehold of socialist-era policies.
Singh, who is currently a member of the Rajya Sabha, has been ill for some time.
