“Remembering Dadi today with a deep sense of happiness. She taught me so much and gave me unending love. She gave so much of herself to her people. I am very proud of her,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

“Today we honour the first female Prime Minister of India and one of the strongest leaders our country has seen. Through her premiership, our nation saw great victory, incredible development and most importantly upliftment of all sections of society,” Congress Party said.
