IS U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’S ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF PRIME MINISTER DR. MANMOHAN SINGH’S WORK MORE CREDITABLE THAN THE “JAI HO” NUMBER?

obama-pm1United State President Barrack Obama is full of praises of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. In the G-20 summit, President Barrack Obama acknowledged the work that Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has done in leading India to the path of economic growth long before be took charge as Prime Minister.
