Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who passed away here today, was known for his oratory skills.

Vajpayee would have ordered nuclear tests in 1996, had he remained PM: Experts 17.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
 Atal Bihari Vajpayee would have ordered the nuclear tests in 1996 when he became prime minister the first time, but his government lasted only 13 days which delayed India's journey to becoming a nuclear weapon state, experts said on Thursday.  When he assumed the prime ministership for the second time in March 1998, he immediately ordered the tests, following which India declared itself as a nuclear weapon state. Under Vajpayee's leadership, India successfully carried out three underground nuclear tests on May 11, 1998. Two more underground tests on May 13 completed the planned series of tests. Following the tests, India declared itself a nuclear weapon state. The decision to conduct tests was taken by Vajpayee's predecessor P V Narasimha Rao, but could not be executed as he lost the 1996 polls. In the polls, the BJP, under the leadership of Vajpayee, emerged as the single largest party. Vajpayee formed a minority government, which barely lasted a fortnight (from May 16, 1996 to June 1, 1996) as it ...

From ensuring nuclear strength to initiating a Delhi-Lahore bus service, Atal Bihari Vajpayee achieved a lot as PM 17.8.2018 DNA: Top News
Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee passed away on 16th August, 2018. He was 93 years old. Vajpayee has been considered by many as India’s finest prime ministers and an elder statesman in the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP). He first served as prime minister for 13 days, and then assumed the top position in 1998-1999 when NDA-I assumed power. During his life, Vajpayee has been the recipient of several accolades, including India’s top civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna in 2015. During his leadership, five underground nuclear tests were successfully launched in Pokhran. Prior to the Kargil war in 1999, Vajpayee had initiated diplomatic peace processes with Pakistan and had even inaugurated a New Delhi-Lahor bus service in February that year. His finest hour, however, came during Operation Vijay, when the Indian Army successfully pushed back the Northern Light Infantry soldiers and Pakistani terrorists, thereby recapturing 70% of infiltrated territory. The army also successfully captured border hilltops ...
