Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday spoke to Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar after he was attacked by a Sikh youth and condemned the assault.

"The Prime Minister spoke to Sharad Pawar and condemned the assault on him," a statement from the Prime Minister's Office said in New Delhi.

The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief was attacked at the NDMC Centre.

The attacker, Harvinder Singh, had on Saturday assaulted former telecommunications minister Sukh Ram.

The turbaned Sikh man also took out his kirpan when security guards tried to overpower him and whisk him away.
