PM Modi pays tributes to ex-PM Rajiv Gandhi on his birth anniversary

Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on his birth anniversary on Sunday. Rajiv Gandhi, who served as the 7th Prime Minister of India from 1984 to 1989, was born on the 20th of August 1944. The Congress remembered former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi on his birth anniversary, saying he was a "true patriot" and "great son" of India who made invaluable contributions in the making of 21st century India. Paying rich tributes to Rajiv Gandhi, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge described him as an architect of Digital India and said his stellar performance as prime minister earned him a place among top leaders of the world.He said Rajiv Gandhi was a leader who inspired hope among millions of Indians. Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Party leaders Sonia Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi have also paid their tribute to Rajiv Gandhi at Veer Bhumi in Delhi.

Later, Kharge and Sonia Gandhi along with other leaders also paid tributes to Rajiv Gandhi at his portrait in the central hall of Parliament. Prominent among those present in the central hall of Parliament were Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. As we observe Sadbhavana Diwas, it is pertinent to remember Rajiv Gandhi's vast contributions which propelled India into the 21st Century, he said. His numerous interventions such as lowering of voting age to 18 years, sustained peace accords, universal immunisation programme and a new education policy with emphasis on inclusive learning brought transformative changes in the country, he said."We pay our deepest respects to Rajiv Gandhi ji on his birth anniversary," Kharge said
