New Delhi, Dec 22: Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the 10th Prime Minister of India, is known for his witty replies and fiery speeches. A poet by heart and an orator par excellence, Atal Bihari Vajpayee is considered as ‘Bhishma Pitamah’ of Indian Politics. However Vajpayee is a very soft-spoken person but his statements often left the listeners in awe and the opposition in jitters.

Here is a video of Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s furious reply to Congress president Sonia Gandhi in the Parliament. In the video, agitated Vajpayee gave an apt reply to Sonia Gandhi when she said that the BJP government betrayed the mandate of the people.

“The BJP led government has shown itself to be incompetent, insensitive, irresponsible and corrupt. It is a government that has betrayed the mandate of the people,” Sonia Gandhi had said. Responding to the remarks made by Sonia Gandhi about the BJP government, Vajpayee lost his cool and said that who the Congress was to decide the performance of the government.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee denounced the kind of politics was played by the Congress and asked the party to express dissent in an appropriate manner rather than defaming the ruling party. Vajpayee asks the Congress to raise the standard of their politics and respect the political differences. Watch the fiery response of Atal Bihari Vajpayee to Sonia Gandhi below:
