Indira Gandhi birth anniversary: PM Modi pays tribute

Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her 103rd birth anniversary.

Indira Gandhi, born to first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Kamala Nehru on November 19, 1917, was the first and only women Prime Minister of India. She held the PM post for nearly 14 years, which was only one year less than her father Jawaharlal Nehru.

Indira Gandhi’s PM years saw some dramatic events like the 1975 Emergency, the 1971 Bangladesh liberation and the Operation Blue Star. She was murdered by her own bodyguards on October 31, 1984.

Earlier in the day Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi also paid tributes to the late Prime Minister.
