Shri. Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
The man was a honest statesman, able administrator, a patriot, a visionary besides being a brilliant orator, debater and poet. He ran a 24 party coalition in one of the most chaotic times in the country and provided not just stable but a very able governance. When Jayalalitha pulled the carpet under his feet, he didn’t opt for horse trading and lost the confidence motion by 1 vote. Now that is integrity unheard of. Best performing parliamentarian for over 5 decades. Baapji, a true Bharat Ratna.
Simple, respectful, friendly and always smiling, he represented the best of India. Even his political rivals would concede he won their hearts.
Some achievements (in 1 term only):
-National Highways and Golden Quadrilateral project
-Pradhan Mantri gram sadak yojna
-Pokharan 2 tests
-Lahore bus yatra, friendship with Pak

-Built a strong team, secondary leadership

-A sense of hope for all Indians
-Jai jawan, jai kisan, jai vigyaan
