SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today saw praise for 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'. Dr Manmohan Singh is right - history will judge him more kindly," Omar wrote on microblogging site soon after the US President's address at the Siri Fort Auditorium in the Union capital.               

When India and the United States 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!".
