He lived a full life. Completely dedicating him to the cause of Hindutva. Of late he was very frail, would attend, public programmes, silently listening to the speakers from his wheel chair. without disturbing anyone. Those who remember the Ram Temple- Ayodhya days, would recall his contribution. But the politics of Delhi is very ruthless.
Our tributes to him. Tarun Vijay
