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. Our congratulations are with you. We will be completely involved in the service of our country. We bow down to the strength of majority. We assure you that till the time the work that we started with our bare hands in national interest is not completed, we shall not rest.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

'Be my guest' in Moscow: Vladimir Putin tells Donald Trump; White House welcomes idea 28.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he wanted US President Donald Trump to be his guest in Moscow, an idea that the White House welcomed despite lingering criticism over the Helsinki summit. The Russian leader said on a visit to South Africa for an economic conference that "appropriate conditions" were required in both countries for another summit to take place, an apparent reference to a political uproar in the United States last week after the two men met. The White House said Trump was enthusiastic about another summit. Trump has said he wants to improve ties between the two nuclear powers, whose relations have dipped to a post-Cold War low in recent years. "President Trump looks forward to having President Putin to Washington after the first of the year, and he is open to visiting Moscow upon receiving a formal invitation," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement. Separately, US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said he was considering the possibility of the first talks in ...

Pakistan Elections 2018: As Imran Khan seeks victory over Nawaz Sharif, PML-N hints at 'pre-poll rigging' 24.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Cricket star-turned-politician Imran Khan is hoping to become Pakistan's prime minister after 20 years of being dismissed at the polls, as the country prepares to vote in a tense election pitting him against the party of jailed ex-premier Nawaz Sharif . Just over a decade after the end of Pakistan's most recent era of military rule , Wednesday's vote features competing narratives of democracy amid Sharif's accusations elements of the powerful army are working to throw the race to Khan, which he denies. Khan, 65, has hailed Sharif's conviction on corruption charges this month as proof democracy is maturing in the nuclear-armed Muslim-majority nation of 208 million by finally holding its venal political elite accountable. Supporters of Sharif, whose party is now led by his younger brother, Shehbaz , argue his downfall was politically motivated and engineered by the army establishment, representing a blow to the "sanctity of the vote" that gave his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) a majority in the last ...
