Manmohan Singh

Biography

Manmohan Singh is a revered economist who served as the Prime Minister of India for two terms, the incredible feat only achieved once before by Jawaharlal Nehru. With a doctorate in economics from Oxford University, Singh worked for the United Nations in his prime and subsequently held several key positions in the economic governance of our country. He is largely credited in saving the country from the brink of a full-fledged economic disaster in 1991 by formulating structural reforms to revive the country's economy from a comatose state. Under his stewardship as a Finance Minister, the crisis was successfully averted and India was back on track to becoming the fastest growing economy. He was elected as the member of Rajya Sabha in 1991 and has served four terms since his first succession. He was elected as the Prime Minister of India in 2004 when Sonia Gandhi decided to relinquish the post following UPA's victory in the electoral Polls. He was elected again in 2009.
