New Delhi: Congress general secretary in-charge Priyanka Gandhi on Tuesday paid tributes to her father and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on his 28th death anniversary calling him her "hero".

She also shared an image from the past in which she could be seen hugging Rajiv Gandhi. Along with the picture the Congress leader also shared few stanzas from Harivansh Rai Bachchan's famous poem 'Agneepath'.

 

"You will always be my hero", she wrote along with the image.

Earlier in the day, United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka paid floral tribute to late prime minister on his death anniversary at Veer Bhumi here.

In a tweet, Rahul remembered his father as a gentle person who taught him to forgive and never hate.

"My father was gentle, loving, kind & affectionate. He taught me to love & respect all beings. To never hate. To forgive. I miss him. On his death anniversary, I remember my father with love & gratitude," he said.

 

 Earlier on Tuesday, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to the late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.

“Tributes to former PM Shri Rajiv Gandhi on his death anniversary,” tweeted PM Modi.

This comes after PM Modi during an election rally in Uttar Pradesh called Rajiv Gandhi,  ‘bhrashtachari’ no 1 (corrupt number 1).

 

 “Your father (Rajiv Gandhi) was termed Mr Clean by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘bhrashtachari’ no 1, PM Modi said while targetting Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
