Indira Gandhi remembered on her 32nd death anniversary

Lucknow, Oct 31 (IANS) Rich tributes were paid here to late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her 32nd death anniversary on Monday.

Senior leaders of the Congress party’s state unit recalled the rich contribution of Indira Gandhi and said that leaders from all over the world had tremendous respect for her.

Referring to the adulation she earned in the country, senior leader Fazle Mehmood said she had worked immensely for the poor, farmers, downtrodden and the marginalised — a reason that she continues to live in the memories of millions even 32 years after her demise.

Floral tributes were also paid to India’s first Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who unified the multitude of princely states into a strong united nation, at the state Congress headquarters here.
