New Delhi: HRD Minister Kapil Sibal, who has been upset after being attacked by a party colleague in Parliament, was on Saturday complimented by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his zeal and dedication in handling the "most important" ministry.

"I compliment and pay tribute to my colleague Shri Kapil Sibal for the zeal, dedication and enthusiasm that he has brought to bear on the work of this most important ministry of Union Government that the Human Resource Development Ministry is," he said.

Singh was addressing National Award winning teachers at his residence on the occasion of Teacher's Day.

The HRD Minister had to defer the Education Tribunal Bill, 2010, a key educational reform bills, which came under attack from Opposition members as also senior Congress leader K Keshava Rao in the Rajya Sabha.

Sibal was understood to be upset at the turn of events in Rajya Sabha as the passage of the Bill would have expedited efforts to take up other important educational reforms Bills like Prohibition of Unfair Practices in Technical, Medical Educational Institutions and Universities Bill, 2010 and National Accreditation Authority Bill.

Rao, joined by members from other parties, had attacked Sibal in the Rajya Sabha for his "hurry" to get the House to pass the Education Tribual Bill.
