Rajiv Gandhi birth anniversary: Rahul pays tribute to father on banks of Pangong lake in Ladakh | India News


Congress MP Rahul Gandhi Sunday paid tributes to former prime minister and his father Rajiv Gandhi on the occasion of his 79th birth anniversary on the banks of the Pangong Tso in Ladakh.

Rahul is currently on a two-day visit to the Union Territory. “Here, the concern is of course China has taken away the land… and of course the lack of connectivity. People have said that China’s army has entered the area and their grazing land has been taken away. The Prime Minister has said that not an inch of land was taken away, but this is not true, you can ask anyone here,” Rahul told reporters on Sunday morning.

Congress leader and Rajiv’s wife Sonia Gandhi paid tribute at Veer Bhumi, Rajiv’s memorial, on Sunday morning. She was accompanied by daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge and Rajya Sabha MP K C Venugopal.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also paid tribute to Rajiv on X (formerly known as Twitter). He wrote: “On his birth anniversary, my tributes to former PM Shri Rajiv Gandhi Ji.”

Kharge penned a tribute to Rajiv on X, calling him “a leader who inspired hope among millions of Indians.”

Kharge added, “As we observe Sadbhavana Diwas today, it is pertinent to remember his vast contributions which propelled India into the 21st Century. His numerous interventions such as lowering of voting age to 18 years, strengthening of Panchayati Raj, Telecom and IT revolution, computerisation programme, sustained peace accords, universal immunisation programme and a new education policy with emphasis on inclusive learning brought transformative changes in the country.”
