PM Modi said former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh will be remembered for his contribution to the country as a parliamentarian and has the nation’s head

Prime Minister Narendra Modi bid farewell to the retiring Rajya Sabha MPs on Thursday and praised former Prime Minister and veteran Congress leader, Manmohan Singh, for his contribution to the democracy.

Addressing the upper house during the Parliament’s Budget session, he said, “I want to remember Dr Manmohan Singh today, his contribution has been immense. For such a long time, the way he has guided this House and the country, he will always be remembered for it.”

He praised Dr Manmohan Singh for coming in a wheelchair to Parliament to cast his vote and setting an example for other MPs to perform their duties and giving strength to democracy.

“I remember in the other House, during the voting, it was known that the treasury bench would win but Dr Manmohan Singh came in his wheelchair and cast his vote. This an example of a member being alert of his duties,” he said.
