#Atal_Bihari_Vajpayee‘s Chhattisgarh Sojourn
The state cabinet’s decision to rename #Naya_Raipur as #Atal_Nagar is surely a befitting tribute to the true gem of the nation- Atal Bihari Vajpayee who had played a key role in the formation #Chhattisgarh. He always had an affection towards #Raipur which is evident in his 3 visits in #Dhamtari that he made in the years 1974, 1985 & 1989 respectively, when that was under #Raipur_District.
Mr Vajpayee in every of his Chhattisgarh sojourns would also visit the house
In his 3rd sojourn when he went to #Nagari Tehsil, he was deeply impressed by the works towards welfare of the local people by Mr Sahu’s daughter Mamta Sahu– member of #Chhattisgarh_State_Commission_For_Women who was just 18 years old then. Mr Vajpayee blessed her for the commendable social work at such a young age. She was also given a letter of appreciation written by the colossus himself.
Here we share with you a few pictures of Atal Bihari Vajpayee with Kripa Ram Sahu that were taken during his Chhattisgarh visit & also the picture of the aforementioned letter written in appreciation of #Mamta_Sahu.
