Atal Bihari Vajpayee (born 25 December 1924) is an Indian statesman who was the eleventh Prime Minister of India, first for 13 days in 1996 and then from 1998 to 2004. A leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he is the first Prime Minister from outside the Indian National Congress party to serve a full five-year term. Vajpayee, who has been ailing for sometime, has been credited for taking bold initiatives, notable being the attempt to bridge Indo-Pak differences. The Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian honour in the country and is given in recognition of exceptional service or for performance of the highest order. BJP leaders have in the past demanded that the Bharat Ratna be awarded to Vajpayee.
