Congress President Sonia Gandhi while participating in the discussion on the occasion to commemorate the 60th anniversary of India's first Parliamentary session, paid tributes to the great national leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Jawahar Lal Nehru who had played crucial roles in the national building and the freedom struggle.
Remembering Mahatma Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi said, “I pay my deepest tribute to Mahatma. He was no longer living when this House first met, yet he was the guiding light that made it all possible. Leading a life of spartan simplicity he dedicated himself to the last and the least. He taught us the power of love and compassion”.
The Congress President then recalled the contribution of the first Prime Minister of India, Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru. “I pay homage to Jawaharlal Nehru, his comrades-in-arms and political colleagues too numerous to mention, whose profound belief and single-minded determination gave spirit and substance to the idea, the functioning and the nurturing of our Parliament through its formative stages” said Sonia Gandhi.
Sonia Gandhi also paid her tributes to Dr BR Ambedkar, the creator of our constitution. ”I pay homage to Dr. BR Ambedkar who accomplished an immensely difficult task to create the constitutional frame on which our democracy stands” said the Congress President.
