RSS chief KS Sudarshan, whose remarks on leadership in BJP created a furore in the party and the sangh parivar, has now lauded former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayees prime ministership.

The NDA government headed by Vajpayee was the first non-Congress government which successfuly completed its term and shattered the myth that only Congress could provide a stable government, he said a function in Viratnagar on Wednesday.

The RSS chief, who had said in an interview that he would not rate Mr Vajpayee as among the best PMs India had, said his remarks were wrongly interpreted and demanded an apology from the media.
