Lal Krishna Advani remembered his Journey

The BJP stalwart, who played a crucial role in bringing national prominence to the party through his Rath Yatra in the early 1990s advocating for the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, was honored with the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, on Saturday.

Prime Minister Modi praised Advani as one of the most esteemed politicians of our time and highlighted his important contribution to India’s progress at the announcement of the award for the seasoned leader.

A figure widely revered in contemporary politics, his impact on India’s progress is truly monumental. His journey, starting from grassroots work to serving the nation as our Deputy Prime Minister, is commendable. He made his mark as our Home Minister and Information & Broadcasting Minister as well,” stated PM Modi.

Born in Karachi

Born in Karachi and later moving to India after the partition, at the age of thirteen, Lal Krishna Advani joined the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in 1941. He joined the group that was founded by the well-known Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, which in 1980 became the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
