A road in Delhi was on Tuesday named after slain Bharatiya Janata Party leader Pramod Mahajan on his 59th birth anniversary.

The street connecting PVR multiplex in Saket and Mehrauli-Badarpur road in south Delhi was dedicated by Leader of Opposition Lal Kishenchand Advani at a function attended by Mahajan's widow Rekha [Images].

Paying rich tributes to Mahajan, who was allegedly shot dead by his brother Pravin in April 2006, Advani said he was the "best man-manager" and that the void created by his absence was hard to fill in the current political scenario.

"Mahajan was the best man-manager we had. He had tremendous managerial abilities and we miss him now," he said.

"It was he who conceptualised the idea of rath yatra from Somnath to Ayodhya," he added.

Delhi Mayor Arti Mehra said Mahajan was an "invincible soul" and lauded his efforts for bringing a "mobile renaissance" in the country during his tenure as information and broadcasting minister during the National Democratic Alliance regime.
