Dr Manmohan Singh, Ratan Tata among winners of ‘CNN-IBN Indian of the Year’ Award

Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, industrialist Ratan Tata and golfer Jeev Milkha Singh are among the winners of the ‘CNN-IBN Indian of the Year’ Award this year in the Politics, Business and Sports categories, respectively. Winners in other categories would be announced soon.

Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, CNN-IBN and IBN 7, said, “They are truly the most deserving aspirants emerging successful despite tough competition from fellow nominees and a rigorous selection process involving the public and an Electoral College. Their various endeavours and achievements have made the nation hold its head high with pride, making them true Indian icons.”

Jeev Milkha Singh was nominated to this category for his exceptional performance at the recent European Tour. 2006 was a very busy, but fruitful year for the ace golfer and son of former Olympic sprinter Milkha Singh.

From proving a proficient Finance Minister in the past to becoming the Head of the Government of the world’s largest democracy, Dr Manmohan Singh has shown his adaptability to different political roles thus, making him the undisputed winner in the Politics category.

Being the Chairman of the Tata Group is not a simple task. Ratan Tata, a Padma Bhushan awardee, member of the central board of the Reserve Bank of India and member of the Prime Minister’s Council on Trade and Industry, is a man of varied talents and great vision. He has carried the legacy of Tata ahead over the years. This Award is yet another feather in his cap.
