The day after recall, rejoice, regret

Rohtang: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Saturday, inaugurated the 9.02 km-long Atal Tunnel, which connects Manali to Lahaul-Spiti valley in the state and reduces the travelling time by 4-5 hours and distance by 46 kms, and holds both strategic and commercial significance.
In an address here on the occasion, Mr Modi affirmed that the Tunnel has not only realised the dream of Bharatiya Janata Party’s icon, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, but has also ended the decades-long wait of the people of Himachal Pradesh.
On Friday, the nation had celebrated the birth anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri, both whose lives ended early.
