Did Sonia, Manmohan forget to wish Modi?
New Delhi, May 16: While the whole country is rejoicing over the recent victory of the NDA in the Lok Sabha elections, outgoing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today congratulated the new government and wished them for the future governance.

He however did not wish BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in his farewell speech. Instead Manmohan Singh said: "As I leave office, my abiding memory will be the love and kindness that I have always received from you.

It is both a debt that I will never be able to repay and a decoration that I will always wear with pride. I wish the incoming government every success as it embarks on its task and pray for even greater successes for our nation." (Read full speech here )
