Dr. Singh, who was the Prime Minister for the two consecutive terms (from 2004-2014) has turned 88 today.
In a letter to Sharmistha Mukherjee, daughter of Pranab Mukherjee, Sonia Gandhi condoled the loss of Bharat Ratna and said that his life over the past 50 years mirrored 50 years of the history of India.
Sonia Gandhi was appointed as an interim President on August 10, 2019, by the CWC, after Rahul Gandhi stepped down as party chief, taking the responsibility for party’s disastrous defeat in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The country had great expectations from the Prime Minister today he was, after all, addressing the nation but instead of living up to our expectations he once again belied them.
Let them know, that the Congress party will keep asking these questions in national interest. As we all know the Prime Minister has a special soft spot for China.
"Dr Manmohan Singh gave Rs 100 crores in 1991 budget. Why accounts of RGF were refused for CAG auditing? It doesn't comes under RTI. I want to ask Dr Singh what does Sonia Gandhi have to hide and what do you have to say on organised plunder and monumental loot of public money,"said Nadda.
BJP chief JP Nadda posted a series of tweets to counter Manmohan Singh’s criticism of Modi govt over handling of Ladakh confrontation.
The former Prime Minister also said that the Centre's "decisions and actions will have serious bearings on how the future generations perceive us.
Singh also implored the Prime Minister and the Centre to rise to the occasion and ensure that there is justice for Colonel B Santosh Babu and other soldiers "who have made the ultimate sacrifice and resolutely defended our territorial integrity.
China had occupied 640 sq km of Indian territory in Eastern Ladakh. This happened during the second term of UPA regime, when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minster.
