New Delhi (India), Aug 20 (ANI): Yoga guru Ramdev on Monday expressed his condolence on the demise of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and said, such iconic leaders are remembered for ages to come.
"As long he was alive, he made Bharat Mata immensely proud. He equally set such an example that he will be remembered for the ages to come," Ramdev said at the prayer meeting held in Vajpayee's honour in New Delhi.
Leaders across the political spectrum also paid rich tributes for the former prime minister. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh highlighted how immensely popular Vajpayee was as a leader, opposition leaders such as Ghulam Nabi Azad and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti underscored the human side of the late BJP veteran.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee breathed his last on August 16 at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after a period of prolonged illness. He was 93. (ANI)
