Setting aside their political differences, leaders of all political parties came under one roof once again to remember and pay their homage to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the prayer meeting organised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday. Describing Vajpayee's steely resolve, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on how Vajpayee gave the message to the world that India would never bow to the international pressure by conducting Pokhran nuclear tests, first on May 11 and the again when sanctions were being put, on May 13. "It was Atalji who took the atal (unflinching) decision to conduct the nuclear tests and gave a message that nothing can bend India's resolve," he said. PM Modi also talked about how Vajpayee remained strongwilled despite the fall of his government within 13 days and worked hard by honouring regional aspirations and leading a coalition government soon after.

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

This country should survive, its democracy should survive," [Vajpayee in Lok Sabha when his government faced a trust vote in May 1996]. * You want to run the country. It is a very good thing.

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 ...

Atal Bihari Vajpayee passes away: A statesman of all times 17.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
When Manmohan Singh stepped into his office in the South Block on May 22, 2004, after taking over as the 'accidental' Prime Minister, his predecessor Atal Bihari Vajpayee had kept a handwritten note on the table, pleading with him to continue with the four policy initiatives that the NDA had started in the larger interests of the country and the region. These included an agreement with the United States on Next Steps in Strategic Partnership (NSSP), initiatives with Pakistan, which Vajpayee had revived just few months before with Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf during his Islamabad trip on January 6, 2004, building of the golden quadrilateral highway network and the inter-linking of rivers. While UPA government went slow on the inter-linking of rivers, Singh assiduously worked on the other initiatives. The NSSP fructified into the India-US civilian nuclear deal in 2008, ending technological apartheid for India. The January 6, 2004 Islamabad agreement led to the famed Singh-Musharraf formula on Jammu ...

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 ...

Leaving boundaries of their respective parties, political leaders on Thursday bid an emotional goodbye to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee describing him as a visionary statesman with acceptability across a diverse ideological spectrum. Vajpayee, who was 93, died at AIIMS this evening after a prolonged illness. Several leaders saw a personal loss in death of Vajpayee, one of India's most respected leaders who led the nation through several crises and held together a tenuous coalition with his inclusive politics. Veteran BJP leader L K Advani , who along with Vajpayee was a central figure in the party for much of its existence, described the former prime minister as one of the country's tallest statesmen and his closest friend for over 65 years whom he will miss immensely.
