Pawan, NTR praise 'Nationalist' Vajpayee

The demise of Vajpayee has saddened Jana Sena leader Pawan Kalyan and actor NTR.  They have issued statements praising the former Prime Minister.

"He was a force, a multi-faceted personality, a selfless politician who practised value-based politics.  During his reign, the nation progressed across all fields," Pawan Kalyan said in a statement. 

If Power Star made it a point to say that Vajpayee was instrumental in making India a nuclear state, the 'Aravindha Sametha' actor hailed his efforts to make India an infrastructurally developed economy.  

"Salute to one of the greatest leaders ever to lead our country. A peerless statesman, a bold nationalist and a man whose vision for a well connected India gave us the Golden Quadrilateral. Atal ji will live on forever in our hearts," NTR said.
