Besides his mastery over statecraft, former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was also well-known for his oratory skills.
Whenever he spoke, the audience was left spellbound. His command over the Hindi language as seen in his articulate speeches drew applause from even his political opponents.
On April 23, the Prime Minister retweeted a tweet in which Vajpayee is seen delivering a fiery poem.
The poem is part of a speech made by the former prime minister in the aftermath of the Kargil War.
