When Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru praised Atal Bihari Vajpayee and said he always criticizes me but one day will be "PM Of INDIA"
In 1957 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee arrived Lok Sabha member for the first time from Balrampur, his speeches in the House greatly influenced the First Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Pandit Nehru became convinced of Vajpayee's tremendous hold in foreign affairs. At that time, Vajpayee used to sit on the last benches in the Lok Sabha, but in spite of this, Pandit Nehru gave a lot of attention to his speeches.
It is also said that once Pandit Nehru introduced Atal Bihari Vajpayee as a possible future Prime Minister candidate to a foreign guest. Novelist Kingshuk Nag has mentioned an incident in his book, which shows how much Vajpayee had respect for Pandit Nehru. According to him, when Vajpayee became Foreign Minister in 1977, when he reached his office in South Block to take charge, he noticed that the picture of Pandit Nehru, was missing. He immediately asked his secretary about this. It was found that some officials deliberately removed that photo from there. That is probably because Atalji was the leader of the anti-Nehru group. But Vajpayee ordered that the picture to be restored there again.
