“When the big tree falls, the ground shakes” quoted by Rajiv Gandhi makes sense today. The whole country broke into tears after the sad demise of the former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. As a mark of respect, several other states in India declared a holiday to schools, colleges.
On the other side of the spectrum, it seems that people are still venting out their frustration by making hate tweets our late former PM. It was not acceptable by any means. Vajpayee, in his stint, he maintained a dignity in his position. He was even respected by all the political leaders across the country.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee served as the Prime Minister of India for three times, first for a term of 13 days in the year 1996 and for a period of 11 months from 1998 to 1999, and then he extended his contributions from 1998 to 2004.
He was a prominent member of the Indian Parliament for over 4 decades, being elected to the Lok Sabha, the lower house, ten times, and twice to the Rajya Sabha, the upper house. He served as the Member of Parliament for Lucknow, UP until 2009 when he called it quits from politics owing to health concerns
Mr. Vajpayee was conferred India’s highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, by the President of India in 2014. It was officially declared by the Modi government in 2014 that Vajpayee’s birthday on December 25 would be remembered as Good Governance Day.

Intellectual Terrorism Is The Next Big Threat To Humanity. What's Worse Is They Have The Same Mindset Like That Of A Terrorist But You Can't Spot Them As They Don't Carry A Gun In Their Hand. #AtalBihariVajpayee 🙏 pic.twitter.com/W19dxMIkqm

Those who are celebrating the death of #AtalBihariVajpayee are in the same category of filthy gutter class Sanghoos. Vajpayee as the PM maintained the dignity of the chair. Political leaders across the spectrum paying rich tributes to the great MSN is a testimony. #RIPVajpayeeJi
