Reactions of Indian Political Leaders and Activists After Pokhran Nuclear Test

Pokhran-II was the series of five nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by India at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in May 1998. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came back to power in March 1998 under the leadership of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.  Vajpayee and his principal secretary Brajesh Mishra controlled the entire operation from the Prime Minister’s Office.  The operation was conducted in such high secrecy that nobody except the then Home Minister LK Advani knew about it. Even Defence minister George Fernandes was told about the tests on May 9 and the three service chiefs and foreign secretary were informed over the next three days.
