Atal Bihari Vajpayee

Atal Bihari Vajpayee is an Indian statesman, who served as the tenth Prime Minister of India thrice- including brief first term in 1996 and two terms from 1998 to 2004. After a brief stint as Prime Minister in 1996, Vajpayee headed a coalition government from 19 March 1998 until 19 May 2004. A veteran Parliamentarian whose career stretches over four decades, Shri Vajpayee has been elected to the Lok Sabha (House of the People) nine times and to the Rajya Sabha (House of the States) twice, a record by itself. He served as a Member of Parliament (MP) from Lucknow until 2009, and has since retired from active politics, possibly due to ill-health. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
