Vajpayee no more

By Our Reporter
Former Indian prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee died on August 16 while undergoing treatment at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), in New Delhi following health complications.
According to Indian media reports, Vajpayee was put on a life support system by the doctors after his condition worsened.
He died after prolonged illness. He was 93.
He was a Hindu nationalist and served as Prime Minister India twice for six years from 1999 to 2004.
He ordered nuclear tests to make India a nuclear weapons power and traveled by bus to Pakistan in a grand diplomatic gesture.
A poet-politician, Vajpayee was one of the most popular leaders and prime ministers of India.
Vajpayee was the moderate face of Hindu nationalism, admired by some political foes.
He was also a good friend of Nepal. Although he did not visit Nepal as India’s PM, he had visited Nepal in 1977 as foreign minister of India and as an MP later.
Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Gyawali attended the last rites of Vajpayee held in New Delhi on Friday.
