Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, senior party leader Sonia Gandhi, and other members of the Congress paid tribute to former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on Monday at Shakti Sthal.

The Congress honored Indira Gandhi's contributions as Prime Minister, recalling Bangladesh's liberation and ushering in the Green Revolution. "We salute her unyielding resilience and unwavering vision for the nation's development," the party said in a statement, also honoring Sardar Valabbhai Patel on his birthday.

Indira Gandhi, the daughter of India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, was elected prime minister for the first time in 1966, following the death of Lal Bahadur Shastri. On October 31, 1984, she was assassinated by two of her bodyguards in retribution for the military action at the Golden Temple as part of Operation Blue Star.
