Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had his first official engagement on Wednesday in more than a month after his heart bypass surgery. He met the visiting Benin President Boni Yayi at his 7 Race Course Road residence in New Delhi. Manmohan Singh’s meeting with the African head of state lasted for over 30 minutes where a wide range of bilateral and global issues were discussed. The talks will be followed by the signing of some economy-related agreements, officials said.“He (Singh) was at ease and looked cheerful when he met Benin’s president,” said a prime ministerial aide. The prime minister is expected to return to his routine official work in a week or so but questions persist on whether he will be able to plunge headlong into an electoral campaign in the heat of summer. Lok Sabha polls are scheduled over five phases from April 16 to May 13. Meanwhile, in the backdrop of the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram apprised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of the country’s internal security situation.Chidambaram apprised Singh of the steps being taken by the government to tighten internal security, official sources said.
