New Delhi: Former prime minister Manmohan Singh was admitted to AIIMS Sunday, after he complained of chest pain and uneasiness. This prompted an outpouring of good wishes from many Congress politicians — and some less predictable people

Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad Yadav sent his best wishes from jail in Ranchi where he is serving  a 14-year sentence since December 2017.

Rajya Sabha MP and Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi, till last year in the Congress, wants Singh back in action ASAP.

Assam Health Minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma is another former Congresswallah who is concerned about Dr Singh’s condition. Singh was earlier a Rajya Sabha MP from Assam.

 

Meanwhile, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel shares details of the money received by his Chief Minister’s Relief Fund — is this a subtle dig by the Congress CM at the Centre and the opacity of the PM CARES fund?

 

Lalu Prasad’s son and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav tries to shame the Bihar government on the paltry meals migrants are receiving.

As a former environment minister, Rajya Sabha Congress MP Jairam Ramesh is not impressed by the easing of labour and environmental laws in several states.

 

However, Congress leader P Chidambaram is happy with the government’s move to get trains back on track.

Congress’ digital head Gaurav Pandhi ‘unmasks’ a video of Rajya Sabha proceedings from March this year. Do watch it.

Onto some nostalgia, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan shares a snapshot to celebrate his 1973 film celebrating its 47 th anniversary. Guess the film…

 

UK PM Boris Johnson’s latest Covid slogan has been noted by Twitter. But people are asking, `Stay Alert’ for what?

 

And, Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit party is so disappointed by Johnson’s Sunday evening nationwide address that he may forego sunbathing!

  1. Manmohan Singh Who has really laid the foundation stone of Indian Economy & Globalisation in 1991, a well known economist throughout the world. For 10Years he was a Primeminister of India never indulged in dirty politics. Whenever there is need , he himself felt he should speak, then & then only he opined. So his every word got importance. Even the Gandhians took benefits of his image . The silent worker , a sincere PM to nation & to his own way keep moving like a tortoise of India. I pray God to bless him & be ready to serve the nation. He indeed a really need of the nation at this crucial time.
