Prime Minister Narendra Modi & Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday paid honour to former PM Indira Gandhi on her death anniversary.
Preferring to Twitter, PM Modi tweeted: “A humble tribute to the former Prime Minister of the country, Indira Gandhi on her death anniversary.”
Amit Shah also gave tribute to the former prime minister while flagging off ‘Run For Unity’ marathon on Rashtriya Ekta Diwas at Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium, New Delhi.
“Today, we paid honour to former PM Indira Gandhi on her death anniversary,” he said.
Indira Gandhi served as the first and only woman prime minister of India from January 1966 to March 1977 and again from January 1980 until her assassination in October 1984.
Her Sikh bodyguards assassinated her at her residence in Akbar Road on October 31, 1984. This came after Operation Bluestar execute at Amritsar’s Golden Temple, wherein Indira Gandhi had ordered the Indian Army to confront Sikh separatists who had taken shelter in the holy shrine.
