“Atalji, you will live on in our hearts and minds of every Indian. No words can ever do justice to your rich contribution towards the making of our country” tweeted Modi yesterday. Indian Politics, foreign dignitaries and thousands of ordinary people bid an emotional farewell to former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Friday.
PM Narendra Modi walked the 5 km with thousands of common people in the funeral possession which finally took two hours to reach Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg.
As the procession passed, people shouted slogans of “Atil Bihari amar rahe”, “jab tak soorah chand rahega”, ataji ka naam raheja” and other patriotic cheers.
Even two big Led screens were placed on the DDU Marg to allow people to have a good view of the cortege whereas others climbed trees and barricades.
