    WASHINGTON: The Appeal of Conscience Foundation has announced it will felicitate Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with its prestigious World Statesman Award for the year 2010.

    The award would be presented to the Prime Minister in September, said John Negroponte, the former Deputy Secretary of State, at a reception hosted at the residence of Indian Ambassador to the US. Meera Shankar, in Washington..

    Shankar said the Prime Minister has graciously accepted the award.

    Among the past recipients of this prestigious award include British Prime Minister Gordon Brown (2009), French President Nicolas Sarkozy (2008), German Chancellor Angela Merkel (2007) and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (2006).

    The Appeal of Conscience Foundation was founded by Rabbi Arthur Schneier in 1965. It has worked on behalf of religious freedom and human rights throughout the world.

    This interfaith coalition of business, religious and foreign policy leaders promotes peace, tolerance and ethnic conflict resolution.

    It also provides a voice of conscience to protect minorities at a time of increasing ethnic conflict in many regions of the world.

    I am still angry over the Sharm el Sheik fiasco. He,MMS, thought that since he had won the election
    he could do anything .

    He won the election because his rivals Advani , Karat, Mayawati were "irritating characters"
    and his sincerity in the N deal , and his skills for managing the economy which was in recession then.

    He tried to tell Indian people that " forget about Mumbai " and lets KISS pakistan .

    He was simply taken aback by the REVOLT back home.
    He did a good job in US trip where India's concerns with Pakistan and China were put forward emphatically.

    Another Sharm el Sheikh and he looses his job.
