PM pays tributes to Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shashtri on their birth anniversaries:

2 October has prominent national importance for our country, as on this day two great leaders were born and devoted their life in the service of the country and the last, they snatched our freedom from the Britishers.

PM Narendra Modi on Saturday paid tributes to both legendry personalities on their birth anniversaries, 2 October. He also took Twitter to remind their principles. "I bow to respected Bapu on Gandhi Jayanti. His noble principles are globally relevant and give strength to millions". He also paid tributes to Shashtri Ji and remind his principles, values and kept them as an inspiration for the world.

October 2 is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti as well as a National Holiday and this is the 152nd birth anniversary. Gandhi Ji's principles are still showing people the right way to live life. As he is known as the father of the nation so let me inform you that this title Father of the Nation was given to Mahatma Gandhi by Subhas Chandra Bose. Gandhiji was a lawyer by profession, but a nationalist from the heart and played a crucial role in India's Independence.

People pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shashtri on their birth anniversaries.

Lal Bahadur Shashtri, the former second Prime Minister of India from 1964 to 1966. He also played important roles during the freedom struggle. His famous saying "Jai Jawan Jai Kisan" came in the presence when India was attacked by Pakistan. He supported the White Resolution to boost India's food production and also promoted the Green Resolution which increased food grain production.

Mahatma Gandhi also gave some slogans, one of which is "Do or Die" which was widely accepted by the Indian Public.

UN General Assembly also passed the resolution in 2007 to observe the International Day of Non-Violence on 2nd October to "disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness."

This was a reflection of the universal respect for Mahatma Gandhi and a worldwide acceptance for his philosophy as he has been the inspiration for non-violent movements for civil rights social change across the world.

Shashtri Ji was deeply influenced by Gandhi Ji which made him join the Indian National Congress and National Independence Movement. Both gave their lives to create a free and progressive India.
