Rahul Gandhi tweets a sweet tribute to his father

In a post marking his father Rajiv Gandhi’s death anniversary, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said the former prime minister had taught him “hate is a prison for those who carry it”.

“My father taught me that hate is a prison for those who carry it. Today, on his death anniversary, I thank him for teaching me to love and respect all beings, the most valuable gifts a father can give a son. Rajiv Gandhi, those of us that love you hold you forever in our hearts,” he said in a tweet.

This tweet came before Rahul Gandhi, his mother Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra paid tribute to Rajiv Gandhi at his memorial in Delhi.

Several other senior Congress leaders, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Sushil Kumar Shinde, Mallikarjun Kharge, were also present at the memorial dedicated to the late leader.

Today is the 27th death anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated in 1991 by a woman operative of the separatist Lankan Tamil outfit LTTE, who greeted him at a rally in Tamil Nadu’s Sriperumbudur town with a bomb strapped to her chest.
