Bangla liberation war honour for Vajpayee

After the conferment of the Bangladesh liberation war honour on former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Narendra Modi described the former as a far-sighted leader, who had said that history was being rewritten, as the blood of Indian soldiers flowed together with the Mukti Jodhas, for the liberation of Bangladesh. Modi recalled Atal saying in Parliament on December 6, 1971 that the friendship between India and Bangladesh was like a bond which would not break under any pressure and would never be the victim of any diplomacy. It would have been wonderful if Vajpayee had been present to receive this honour himself. Modi said that though he had entered politics late he had been one of the many youth activists who had come to Delhi in response to Vajpayee’s call for Satyagraha for the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971.
