New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday shared a short video montage of old photos in memory of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on his second death anniversary.

"Tributes to beloved Atal Ji on his Punya Tithi. India will always remember his outstanding service and efforts towards our nation's progress," PM Modi tweeted.

The video presents photos and videos shot during Atal Bihari Vajpayee's political career.

PM Modi's voiceover plays in the video: "This country will never forget Atal ji's sacrifice. Under his leadership India held its head high as a nuclear power. As a politician, a Member of Parliament, a minister or Prime Minister, Atal ji has performed very well in many roles. Many great things can be said about Atal ji's life, and no one aspect is lesser than the other. His speeches used to be talked about. In future if some expert analysed his speeches, the strength in his silence would turn out many times stronger than his speeches. In parliament also, he would only say a few words. People would get the message from his silence..."
