Congress greets Yunus

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: The Congress on Saturday congratulated Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh for winning the Nobel Peace Prize 2006.

"The Indian National Congress and the Congress president are proud that the Nobel Peace laureate is also the recipient of the Indira Gandhi Award for Peace, Disarmament and Development from the Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust in 1998. We are happy that our faith in Mr. Yunus and his unique organisation has been vindicated and redeemed," it said in a statement.

Mr. Yunus and the Grameen Bank stand for excellence in diverse spheres of human endeavours, all extremely close to the Congress and its president.
