1. Former Chief Minister Mayawati used to call Tandon her brother
The Defense Minister remembered the old days. Said- When Mayawati ji was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, then she used to call Lalji Tandon as her brother. Mayawati had said on the open platform that Tandon ji is my brother. Similarly, he had very good relations with the leaders associated with the Congress and the Samajwadi Party. If one wants to maintain his relationship while in politics, then one should take a lesson from Tandon ji.
2. Atal ji Ram was Tandon Lakhan
Rajnath Singh also spoke about the relationship between former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Lalji Tandon. Said that if Atal ji is called Ram, then Tandon ji was his Lakhan. Atal ji was very fond of Tandon ji. Both played a big role in the development of Lucknow. It is the responsibility of all of us to continue the development which was laid by Atal ji and Tandon ji. Being the public representative of Lucknow, I will also participate in this.
3. Whoever the Chief Minister was, he used to take Tandon ji’s advice.
The Defense Minister also told the story of himself and Kalyan Singh during his tenure as Chief Minister. Said, whether I lived or Kalyan Singh ji. We both used to consult Lalji Tandon before taking any decision. Tandon ji established BJP in Uttar Pradesh and in the corridors of power. His hold was very good in national, international and local affairs.
This statue of Lalji Tandon was unveiled.
During this, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dr. Dinesh Sharma, BJP State President Swatantra Dev Singh were also present.
