“His is a life that started from working at the grassroots to serving the nation as our Deputy Prime Minister. He distinguished himself as our Home Minister and I&B Minister as well. His Parliamentary interventions have always been exemplary, full of rich insights,” the PM added.

Earlier on January 23, the government announced to honour the former Bihar Chief Minister and great socialist leader, Karpoori Thakur with Bharat Ratna. PM Modi had also expressed his happiness over the Centre’s move to felicitate the late Bihar politician with ‘Bharat Ratna.

LK Advani joined his hands and greeted the people.

“The entire family is very happy that ‘Dada’ (LK Advani) has received the country’s highest honour. Today I miss my mother the most because her contribution to his life, be it personal or political life is huge. When I told Dada, he was very happy and said that he spent his entire life in the service of his country. He thanked PM Modi and the people of the country for honouring him with such a big award,” Pratibha Advani said.

“He is very overwhelmed. He is a man of few words. But he had tears in his eyes. He was very happy even at the time of Pran Pratishtha of Ram temple. This was such a dream of his life for which he struggled and worked for a long time. His personality is such that when someone praises him, tears come to his eyes,” she added.
