Manmohan Singh was born on 26-09-1932 in Gah, Chakwal in the state of Punjab, Pakistan. He is an Indian Prime Minister, Politician, Economist & Civil Servant.

Career

Manmohan Singh is one of India’s most eminent politician and economist. He has served as Prime Minister of India for two successive terms from 2004-2014. In his decorated political career, he has held numerous prestigious posts of various organizations and has garnered several recognition and honours for his splendid work.
 
Besides holding the post of Prime Minister of India, some of the most prestigious posts that he held are Chief Economic Advisor in the Ministry of Finance, advisor to the Foreign Trade Ministry, head of the Planning Commission, and Governor of RBI among others. In the decade of the 1990s, he served as the Finance Minister in P. V. Narasimha Rao’s cabinet. During his term, he laid out some prominent financial plans which were well structured and brought reforms in India and also liberalized Indian economy. Since Sonia Gandhi was the head of the UPA, she still named Dr. Manmohan Singh as India’s Prime Minister which did come as a surprise to all. He brought all his previous brilliant bureaucratic experience into play and his no-nonsense image earned him a lot of accolades and was therefore re-elected as the Prime Minister of India by the people of India.
 
His second term though came under scrutiny right from the word go. We were already battling inflation and many scams took place under his cabinet which not just deteriorated party’s image but his image as well. He made it clear before the 2014 general elections that he is not in the race for the Prime Minister and bid adieu to his glorious career after the 2014 general elections. He thought may have faced some severe criticism, will always remain as one of the biggest architects who ushered India into a new mold. He is arguably one of India’s biggest scholar, thinker, and a talented economist. He to date is the only Prime Minister who has held his post for two successive terms after Jawaharlal Nehru.
