NewsX, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, President, rameshwaram,

He was one of India's greatest icons, revered by millions, but a year after the country bid a teary farewell to Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the former president has been abandoned by our netas.
His final resting place lies under a tin shelter speaking volumes about the complete apathy of the ruling class.
We at NewsX would like to ask all those who made tall promises, what happened to them.
Is building a memorial for an icon par excellence such a difficult task? Why is it that a place that is visited by people from across the country is not given priority even as the netas go around paying lip-service to the memory of Dr. Kalam?
