Digvijay Singh greets Atal Bihari Vajpayee on receiving Bharat Ratna

Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday congratulated former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee after he was honoured with the Bharat Ratna, the country's highest civilian honour.

"We congratulate him with great honour on receiving the Bharat Ratna," Singh told reporters in the state assembly.

Singh said though Vajpayee was not from Congress, but former prime ministers such as Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi had great regards for him.

The senior Congress leader recalled how Vajpayee praised him thrice during the Chief Minister's conference.

Singh had arrived here to offer fruit juice to Congress MLAs who gave up their indefinite hunger strike on the issue of providing relief to farmers hit by rain and hailstorms.

Digvijay Singh was the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh between 1993 and 2003.
