New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid respect to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee at Central Hall of Parliament today. A life-size portrait of Vajpayee was unveiled by President Ram Nath Kovind.
“Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee offered decisive leadership under challenging circumstances. The 1998 nuclear test in Pokhran and the Kargil war of 1999 are classic examples”, said the President.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi recollected Vajpayee’s powerful speech and it’s influence. ” Atalji continued rising issues of public interest and never ever deviated from his ideology. There was power in Atalji’s speech and there was equal power in Atalji’s silence. His communication skills were unparallelled.”
