Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also reached Delhi’s Raj Ghat to pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his death anniversary.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible but in the end, they always fall. Think of it always,” wrote Gandhi with images of him at Raj ghat.
Apart from Modi and Kovind, Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla also paid homage to the leader.
Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948. His death anniversary is observed as Martyrs' Day.
