Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wishes Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh On His 85th Birthday

Manmohan Singh, an economist and architect of the reforms in the early 1990s, turned 85 today.


New Delhi:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday wished his predecessor Manmohan Singh on his birthday praying for his long life.

"Warm birthday wishes to our former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. May he lead a long life filled with good health," PM Modi tweeted this morning.

Mr Singh, who turned 85 on Tuesday, was the Prime Minister between 2004 and 2014 during the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime. Mr Singh was born in Gah in undivided Punjab in 1932.

His political career began in 1991 when he was appointed as the country's Finance Minister under late Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao.

It was the same year during which he helped usher in "liberalisation and privatisation" to the Indian economy.
