  • Ex-Indian PM Vajpayee dies at age 93

Unfortunately, his condition has worsened over the last 24 hours. Vajpayee was received at Wagah by then Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. "Chhattisgarh and the entire nation is praying for him".

During his political career, Vajpayee's name became synonymous in India with the rise of the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), which he helped found in the 1980s.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the hospital yesterday evening to enquire about Vajpayee's condition. "Despite the best of efforts, we have lost him today".

Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik who visited New Delhi AIIMS said "I am deeply grieved by the sad demise of Vajpayeeji". He had been admitted in June to the All India institute of Medical Sciences in the capital, suffering from a urinary tract infection and chest congestion. "India has lost one of its tallest leaders". "But Mr. Vajpayee worked discreet diplomacy behind closed doors and set in motion a friendly dialogue with Clinton, who went to India in 2000, the first visit by a USA president to the country in more than two decades".

Leaders of the BJP were gathering at his home in New Delhi to pay their respects. Vajpayee was the first non Congress prime minister to serve a full five-year term. "He lived for the nation and served it assiduously for decades", he tweeted.
