PTI | January 16, 2013
A website of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, containing oral, written and visual material related to the former prime minister and many other information, was launched on Tuesday.
Launching the portal www.ataljee.org, leader of opposition in the lok sabha Sushma Swaraj said it is a big tribute to the leader.
She also described Vajpayee as a good administrator who had set the mark of leading the country with good governance and upholding the true principle of a coalition government.
She said Vajpayee was most importantly a "good human- being understanding the nation's problem from the heart".
While lauding Vajpayee for "successfully leading the 24-party coalition government during the NDA regime", she was critical about the manner in which the present Congress-led UPA government has been functioning blaming each other for its failure.
Earlier, giving a brief description of the portal, BJP activist Sumeet Bhasin said it is digitalised depository of the activities, speeches spoken and delivered by Vajpayee, including his iconic Hindi speech delivered in the UN in 1978.
He said the project is unique as it contains hundreds of thousands of pages of oral, written and visual material related to the legendary leader and spanning over five decades of his memorable and inspiring political journey.
The execution of this project was initiated and entrusted to the Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini (RMP), said Delhi BJP chief Vijendra Gupta, adding the portal has a huge compilation of pictures, videos, articles, poems and books on and by Vajpayee.
Vajpayee is the only other former prime minister besides Jawaharlal Nehru to have a strong web presence of this kind, he added.
The website has been designed and developed by RMP as a part of its 'Samagra Ataljee (Entire Atal Bihari Vajpayee) project', which was announced by BJP national president Nitin Gadkari in December 2010.
