In the world of dirty politics known for venomous words and ruthless opportunism, one name that shines in Gold letters is that of former Indian Prime Minister – Atal Bihari Vajpayee. A parliamentarian for over four decades, the Bharat Ratna recipient has earned an immense amount of respect across political circles and ideologies. It was none other than Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who had predicted that Vajpayee would become the Prime Minister of the country one day. This came true four-decade later when he became the first non-congress Prime Minister to complete a full term in office.
