17 Quotes By Manmohan Singh, The Great Economist, Will Inspire You When Things Go Tough.
Manmohan Singh was the man who was the brains behind steering economic liberalization in the nation. He dispensed with these duties as the RBI Governor and as the Finance Minister. Singh was also the first person of Sikh origin to become the Prime Minister.
Throughout his tenure, Singh has been criticized for being a kingpin of the Gandhi family and turning a blind eye to corruption brewed by his party officials. However the premier's own integrity remained spotless when he walked out of the 7RCR mansion, official residence of the Prime Minister of India.
Singh is usually a man of few words and known for his calm demeanor. But the 2005 UN General Assembly was one of the rare occasions when he gave a snarky reply to the Pakistani foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri.Pakistani President Parvez Musharraf had visited India earlier in the same year in a bid to improve relations between the two countries. However at the General Assembly, Musharraf disapproved of India's stance towards Kashmir issue. When the delegations of the two nations encountered afterwards, Manmohan addressed Kasuri and said, “Kasuri Sahib, Ek to aap Pak-Bharat taluqaat ko improve karne ki baat karte hain, lekin doosri taraf aap khub koshish kar rahein hein Hindustan ko bahar rakhne ki UNSC se.” (You portray that you wish for the ties between the two nations to improve on one hand but on the other you do everything in your capability to ruin India's chances at being included in the United Nations Security Council.)
