Mysuru, August 17:- “I am extremely pained by the demise of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee,” said former deputy chief minister and BJP leader K S Eshwarappa.
He was speaking at a press meet in the city here on Thursday.
“Vajpayee was an inspiration to all the party workers. He mingled with each and every member of the party. I learnt how to interact with the cadre from him. He was not only a leader for India but a world leader. He used to say nation first and party next. I was privileged to share the stage with him once at Shivamogga,” he said. (MR/KS).
