Reacting to Vajpayee's demise, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "I have no words, I am filled with emotions right now. Our respected Atal ji is no more. Every moment of his life he had dedicated to the nation."

The top Congress leadership condoled the demise of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee today with party chief Rahul Gandhi saying India had lost a great son who will be missed. 

Several roads in the capital are closed for the public in view of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's funeral, the Delhi Traffic Police said today.
