"Proud I'm Patriot's Son": Rahul Gandhi's Tribute To Rajiv Gandhi

"I am proud to be the son of a true patriot," said Rahul Gandhi as he remembered his father, Rajiv Gandhi, on the former prime minister's 29th death anniversary today.

"I am proud to be the son of a true patriot, liberal and a benevolent father. As Prime Minister, Rajiv ji had pushed India on the path of progress. He took many important steps to empower the country with his forward-looking vision. Today, on his death anniversary, I salute him with affection and gratitude," Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.



Rajiv Gandhi's party, the Congress, also shared a small video of him on Twitter this morning.

"The man who felt the pulse of a young India & steered us towards a brighter future. The man who understood the needs of the young & old and was loved by one and all," it said.
