Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday paid tribute to former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri on his 52nd death anniversary saying he will be remembered for his courageous leadership.

“We pay homage to Shastriji on his punya tithi (death anniversary). His impeccable service and courageous leadership will be remembered for generations to come,” Modi said in a tweet.

Shastri was born in Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh to Sharada Prasad and Ramdulari Devi on October 2, 1904.

On January 11, 1966, he breathed his last in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, a day after signing the Tashkent Declaration, reportedly due to cardiac arrest.

Shastri was the first person to be posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award in 1966.
