The Former Prime Minister of India I K Gujral (Inder Kumar Gujral), died at the age of 92 (4 December 1919 - 30 November 2012) in New Delhi today (30th November 2012). Gujral, who headed the United Front government for 11 months from April 1997 to March 1998, was India's external affairs minister during the 1991 Gulf War and later became the Prime Minister. Gujral was India's 12th Prime Minister.

Earlier on 19th November,  he was admitted to the hospital due to lung infection. The former Prime Minister, had been unwell for sometime. He was on dialysis for over a year and suffered a serious chest infection some days ago. He will be cremated in nearby Delhi tomorrow. Gujral, who migrated from Pakistan after partition, rose to become the Prime Minister with a big slice of luck after he came up through the ranks - starting as Vice President in NDMC in the '50s to later become a Union Minister and then India's Ambassador to the USSR. Gujral, an intellectual who propounded the 'Gujral Doctrine' of five principles for maintaining good neighbourly relations, left the Congress to join the Janata Dal in the late-1980s.
