A portrait of former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee was unveiled at the Central Hall of Parliament today by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind.
Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Speaker Lok Sabha, Sumitra Mahajan and several other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
Prime Minister addressed the gathering on the occasion. In a series of tweets, PM said:
“Now on, Atal Ji will be forever in the Parliament’s Central Hall, inspiring us and blessing us. If we start talking about the goodness of Atal Ji, it will take hours and hours. Atal Ji had a long political career, a large part of that career was spent in Opposition.
Yet, he continued raising issues of public interest and never ever deviated from his ideology. There was power in Atal Ji’s speech and there was equal power in Atal Ji’s silence. His communication skills were unparalleled. He had a great sense of humour”.
