On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to Mahatma Gandhi, India’s iconic freedom fighter and father of the nation, whose teachings continue to inspire humanity towards unity and compassion. In his address, Prime Minister Modi emphasized the global impact of Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy, urging people to carry forward his legacy.

“I bow to Mahatma Gandhi on the special occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. His timeless teachings continue to illuminate our path. Mahatma Gandhi’s impact is global, motivating the entire humankind to further the spirit of unity and compassion,” Prime Minister Modi stated.

He went on to express his hopes for the future, saying, “May we always work towards fulfilling his dreams. May his thoughts enable every youngster to be the agent of change he dreamt of, fostering unity and harmony all over.”

Born in 1869, Mahatma Gandhi played an indispensable role in India’s fight for independence, and his principles of non-violence and civil disobedience remain influential worldwide.

Prime Minister Modi also remembered India’s second Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri, on his birth anniversary, highlighting Shastri’s simplicity, dedication to the nation, and the iconic slogan “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” that continues to resonate with people.

“His unwavering commitment to India’s progress and his leadership during challenging times remain exemplary,” Prime Minister Modi said. “May we always work to realize his vision for a strong India.”

Lal Bahadur Shastri, who served as India’s Prime Minister from 1964 to 1966, is remembered for his dedication to the welfare of the country and his efforts to promote self-reliance and unity among the citizens.
