Bhishma Pithamaha of Indian Politics.Atal Bihari Vajpayee. one of the two founders of BJP can be called the Bhishma Pithamaha of Indian Politics. Like Bhishma, he never married and he lived alone and never encouraged his relatives to come into politics. He is one of the two leaders who formed the BJP party.
Sanjay Raut, a Siva Sena MP, called him the second most popular leader in India after Nehruji. Vajpayee is being respected by all the people from various states across India. Christmas day is his birth date and his birthday is being celebrated as Good Governance Day in our country.
He was conferred the Bharat Ratna in 2015. He received the Padma Vibhushan in 1992 and the Pt Govind Ballabh Pant Award for Best Parliamentarian in 1994. He died on August 16, 2018, at AIIMS,
New Delhi after a prolonged illness.
I salute this great man on his birthday.
