Salient Points of PM’s address at the release of commemorative coin in honour of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee

The mind is not ready to believe that Atal Ji is no longer with us. He was a stalwart loved and respected across all sections of society

The party which Atal Ji built has become among the largest political parties. Generations of Karyakartas were fortunate to be mentored by him.

As a speaker, he was unparalleled.

He is among the best orators our nation has produced

For some people, power is oxygen…they can’t live without it.

A long part of Atal Ji’s career was spent in the opposition benches but he spoke about national interest and never compromised on the ideology of the party

Atal Ji wanted democracy to be supreme.

He built the Jana Sangh but when the time came to rescue our democracy he and others went to Janata Party.

Likewise, when the choice was between remaining in power or comprising on ideology, he left Janata Party and formed the BJP
