Tributes to Indira Gandhi on death anniversary

PRESS TRUST OF INDIA

Chandigarh/Jammu: Tributes were paid to former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her 28th death anniversary today by Congress leaders in Punjab and Jammu.
 In Chandigarh, several party leaders paid floral tributes to Gandhi’s portrait in a function presided over by Punjab Congress Vice President Laal Singh.
 A similar scene was seen in Jammu where several Congress Ministers, legislators and workers paid rich tributes to the departed leader.
 Minister for Health Sham Lal Sharma, Minister for Revenue, Relief and Rehabilitation Raman Bhalla, MP Madan Lal Sharma and several other legislators paid their homage to the late Prime Minister at the Congress office in Jammu.
 "Martyrs never die and will remain in people's heart," Sharma said while asking political leaders, especially youth, to follow the footsteps of Gandhi.
 The former prime minister was assassinated by her bodyguards on October 31, 1984, the same year when she had launched 'Operation Blue Star' to crush secessionist movement in Punjab.
