Bihar CM Nitish to pay his last respects to Kalam in Delhi

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will fly to Delhi on Tuesday to pay his respects to former president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who passed away in Shillong last evening.



Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will fly to Delhi on Tuesday to pay his respects to former president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who passed away in Shillong last evening.

Dr. Kalam collapsed after a massive cardiac arrest while delivering a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management in Shillong last evening.

The government has declared a seven-day national mourning as a mark of respect for Dr. Kalam, who played a stellar role in advancing India's nuclear programme.

His body is being flown to New Delhi from Guwahati.

Considered the most popular president, Dr. Kalam became the 11th head of the state and occupied the post between 2002 and 2007 during the NDA government headed by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
