History will judge former PM: Omar

New Delhi: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday saw praise for former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in US President Barack Obama’s comments on poverty alleviation in India.

“Obama – ‘Millions have been lifted out of poverty in recent years’. Manmohan Singh is right – history will judge him more kindly,” Omar wrote on microblogging site Twitter, soon after the US President’s address at the Siri Fort Auditorium, in the national capital.

When India and the US agreed upon operationalising the nuke deal, Omar, whose National Conference was part of the UPA-II led by Singh, had said “I wonder if Dr Manmohan Singh is sitting back feeling vindicated today or watching the proceedings disappointed about what could have been!”.
