INDIAN PRIME MINISTER ATAL BEHARI VAJPAYEE BEING OFFERED SWEETS BY SIKH SUPPORTER IN NEW DELHI.
Indian Prime Minister and leader of the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) Atal Behari Vajpayee (L) opens his mouth to receive an offering of a sweet by a Sikh supporter in New Delhi on October 7. Such offerings of sweets are traditionally given to victors in India. The BJP-led coalition was set to return to power as the vote count in last month's staggered elections reached the final rounds.
