Sonia Gandhi said that during Dr Manmohan Singh’s tenure, he earned for India enhanced respect across the globe.

 

Delhi| UPA Chairperson and former Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday praised former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying that he never sought credit for his work. She further said that Singh always allowed his work to speak for himself. She was talking at an event in Delhi.

The veiled jibe comes after Prime Minister Modi’s attack on the UPA government earlier in the morning. Sonia Gandhi said that during Dr Manmohan Singh‘s tenure, he earned for India enhanced respect across the globe not by seeking credit or kudos, but by his work.


“Dr Manmohan Singh’s demeanour is such that it appears he was born wise. In his decade-long Prime Ministerial tenure, India recorded its highest economic growth rate ever,” Gandhi noted. She also noted that when Dr Singh became PM, the country was on edge of an economic crisis. But it was the policies of Dr Manmohan Singh that had a profound calming effect on the economy.
