PM Modi Pays Tributes To Jawaharlal Nehru, Veer Savarkar


New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday remembered first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and paid tribute to him on his 54th death anniversary.

Taking to Twitter, the Prime Minister said, “Tributes to our first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on his death anniversary.”

The month of May is associated with a historic event in 1857. While many preferred to call it only a Mutiny or a Sepoy Mutiny, it was Veer Savarkar who called it the First War of Independence. I pay my tributes to the great Veer Savarkar: PM

“I laud 5 tribal students from Chandrapur, Maharashtra, Ajeet and Deeya Bajaj, Sangeeta Bahl and a BSF contingent for scaling the Mount Everest. The BSF contingent also brought back dirt that had accumulated in the mountains..” PM Narendra Modi said.

Further PM added, “India is delighted to host this year’s World Environment Day programme. It is our duty to live in harmony with nature.”

Earlier in the 43rd edition of the ‘mann ki baat’ show, PM Modi had announced Swachh Bharat summer internship’ for youth.
