PM Modi pays tribute to Rajiv Gandhi on his death anniversary

New Delhi | Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tribute to Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on his death anniversary.

PM Modi on his Twitter account wrote,” Tributes to former PM Shri Rajiv Gandhi on his death anniversary.”

Congress President Rahul Gandhi remembering his father wrote,”My father was gentle, loving, kind & affectionate. He taught me to love & respect all beings. To never hate. To forgive. I miss him. On his death anniversary, I remember my father with love & gratitude.”

Earlier Rahul Gandhi along with UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi and Manmohan Singh paid there tribute to the former Prime Minister at Veer Bhumi.

This comes after Modi dubbed Rajiv Gandhi “bhrashtachari no 1” (corrupt no 1) at an election rally earlier this month. Hitting out at the former prime minister’s son and Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his allegations of corruption in the Rafale fighter jet deal, Modi had said, “Your father was termed ‘Mr. Clean’ by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘Bhrashtachari No:1’.”

Then Prime minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in a suicide bomb attack during a public rally in Sriperumbudur on May 21, 1991 by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
