Indian Official Suggests Nation's Highest Honor for Bush

Rediff.com, Posted: Feb 16, 2009

NEW DELHI - A spokesperson of the ruling Congress party in India thinks India's highest civilian honor should be awarded to George W. Bush, reports Rediff.com. Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi, who is also the chairman of the Indo-US Forum, said that in the 60 years of India's independence no U.S. president has done as much for India as former Pres. Bush. "I am sure Indo-US relations will emerge as the most important relationship for the US in the years to come under President Obama's rule," said U.S. Ambassador to India David Mulford at the meeting of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, where Singhvi made his comments. But India's Parliamentary Affairs minister backed away from Singhvi's comments, saying he needed to be more careful before making comments even in a personal capacity. Sushma Swaraj, spokesperson for the opposition BJP, criticized the comment, saying it showed the ruling government didn't think there were any Indian heroes qualified for India's highest honor.
