Modi’s victory tribute to Vajpayee, says Puri

Chandigarh, May 24 (IANS) BJP’s candidate for Punjab’s Amritsar Lok Sabha seat Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic victory was a tribute to the late Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee and a lesson for the Congress.

“The historic victory of Modi ji is a tribute to Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji and a lesson for Congress that when the earth trembles, big trees also fall,” Puri, who unsuccessfully contested the election, said in a tweet.

Diplomat-turned-politician Puri faced a tough straight fight in the constituency dominated by the Jat community, and lost by 99,626 votes from his Congress rival Gurjit Aujla.
