Touch­ing Adieu to Dr Singh

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page - SRINIVASAN UMASHANKAR

The farewell ac­corded to the out­go­ing Prime Min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh was touch­ing. Dr Singh is an up­right and a bril­liant econ­o­mist. He will be re­mem­bered as one of the best RBI gov­er­nors and the best fi­nance min­is­ter in the P V Narasimha Rao Cab­i­net in the early 1990s. Sadly, he won’t be re­mem­bered as the best Prime Min­is­ter for he did not per­haps get the re­quired author­ity to do so. Just as Narasimha Rao had a spe­cial place in his heart for se­nior BJP leader Atal Bi­hari Va­j­payee, it is hoped that Modi would do well to utilise the ser­vices of Dr Singh to achieve ex­cel­lence.
