His cousin and BJP MP Varun Gandhi also paid tributes to Indira Gandhi saying, “Hundreds of salutations to my grandmother, late Indira Gandhi ji, who was a symbol of unmatched courage and struggle and the pioneer of democratic socialism, on her martyrdom day.” “Along with the determination to take tough decisions, you also had a very simple and gentle tenderness towards motherhood. You are truly the ‘Mother of the Nation’,” Varun Gandhi said of his grandmother.
While Rahul is the son of Indira Gandhi’s elder son Rajiv, Varun Gandhi is the son of her younger son Sanjay. (Agencies)
