New Delhi, Feb 29 (ANI): The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, on Wednesday paid floral tribute before the portrait of former Prime Minister Morarji Desai on the occasion of his 116th birth anniversary.


Morarji Ranchhodji Desai, born on February 29, 1896, was an Indian independence activist and the fourth Prime Minister of India from 1977-79.


He was the first Indian Prime Minister, who did not belong to the Indian National Congress.


After assuming the office, Desai promoted his policies and peace initiatives between Pakistan and India to avoid conflicts, such as the Indo-Pakistani war of 1971.


For this, he was conferred with Nishaan-e-Pakistan. Desai is the only Indian national to receive the highest civilian award from Pakistan, the Nishaan-e-Pakistan.


Desai, who breathed his last on April 10, 1995, was a true Gandhian follower, social worker, institution builder and a great reformer. (ANI)
