Prime Minister Narendra Modi today greeted his predecessor Manmohan Singh who turned 83 today. "I wish Dr. Manmohan Singh on his birthday and pray to Almighty that he remains in good health and leads a long life," the Prime Minister conveyed on Twitter. However, due to Singh's absence on the micro blogging platform, the majestic silence he is known for was maintained.
Born on September 26, 1932 in Gah, which is now in the Pakistani side of Punjab, Singh was the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014. Singh was also the Finance minister in Narasimha Rao government which initiated the privatization of Indian economy in 1991.
