“It is difficult still to believe that Dr. Kalam passed away and that this great man left all of us for his heavenly abode,” he said.

Naidu and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar also laid the foundation stone for a national memorial for the ‘Missile man’ of India, here.

Kalam passed away on July 27 last year after he suffered a massive cardiac arrest while delivering a lecture at IIM- Shillong in Meghalaya.
