When Pandit Nehru predicted Atal Bihari Vajpayee's future
New Delhi : Late Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee was undoubtedly the greatest orator and had a lot of fans, including Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru. There was a time when he predicted future of Mr. Vajpayee and it turned out true as well.
Kingshuk Nag in his book - Atal Bihari Vajpayee: A man for all season - writes that Nehru introduced Mr Vajpayee to the visiting British PM by saying "meet him, he is the leader of opposition, always speaks against me, but I see a lot of possibilities in him in future."
At another instance he introduced Atal Bihari Vajpayee to a foreign guest by saying, meet the future Prime Minister of India.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee also respected Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru by heart. He kept his picture inside South Block even after taking over as Prime Minister of India.
