Chennai | On A P J Abdul Kalam’s first death anniversary, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid homage to the late president, saying the void left by him is irreplaceable.

Its been a year since our beloved Dr A P J Abdul Kalam left us & created a void that is irreplaceable (sic), he wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.

My tributes to this great personality, he said.
