President A P J Abdul Kalam on Wednesday night congratulated the Indian cricket team for their splendid win in the One Day International series between India and Pakistan.
"May I congratulate you on your hard-earned series victory today," Kalam said.
"When 11 players play together, victory is certain. There is no reason for victory to elude us when 100 crore people take a pledge," Prime Minister Vajpayee said.
Deputy Prime Minister Lal Kishenchand Advani said, "It is a memorable victory and I will always remember it."
BJP spokesman Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi described the victory as a 'milestone in PM's peace initiative'.
"People of both the countries have enjoyed the game with sporting spirit, there is no tension in both the countries but only a feel good feeling," he said.
