On Rajiv Gandhis death anniversary, son Rahuls heartfelt words...

New Delhi: Remembering his father and former Indian Prime Minister Rajeev Gandhi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote a heartfelt post on X on Tuesday, Rajeev's death anniversary day.

"Father, your dreams, my dreams. Your aspirations, my responsibilities. Your memories, today and always, in my heart," Rahul wrote.

The death of Rajiv Gandhi is observed as National Anti-Terrorism Day. The country's honourable sixth Prime Minister was killed by a suicide bomber in Sriperumbudur near Chennai on May 21, 1991. The attack was carried out by LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam).

Many Congress leaders, including party president Mallikarjun Kharge, senior leaders Sonia Gandhi, P Chidambaram and Sachin Pilot, etc., paid tribute to the former prime minister at Vir Bhumi in Delhi.

"Heartfelt tribute to the visionary of the 21st century modern India, father of Indian information revolution, architect of Panchayati Raj empowerment, and pioneer of peace and harmony, former Prime Minister, Bharat Ratna Rajiv Gandhi ji on martyrdom day. His remarkable contribution in making India a strong and powerful nation will always be remembered," Mallikarjun Kharge wrote on X.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also posted on X on the occasion. His post read, "On his death anniversary, my tributes to our former PM Shri Rajiv Gandhi Ji."

Rajiv Gandhi became the youngest prime minister of India after his mother Indira Gandhi's assassination in 1984. He served as the Prime Minister from 1984 to 1989.

Anti-Terrorism Day is observed to spread the message of peace and sensitize people about the havoc created because of terrorism. It is a day to promote unity among the people of India and prevent the young generation from getting involved with terror groups. This day also reminds us of the sacrifices made by the people, soldiers and policemen to maintain peace and harmony in the country by saving the nation from terrorist attacks, India TV reports.
