Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday, November 14 paid tributes to her great grandfather and former Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru on his 130th birth anniversary and shared her favourite story on how the country’s first prime minister had once allowed his security guard to sleep on his bed while he rested on a nearby chair.
Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, “My favourite story about my great-grandfather is the one about when as PM, he returned from work at 3 am to find his bodyguard exhausted and asleep on his bed. He covered him with a blanket and slept on an adjacent chair.”
“Sometimes the simplest things tell us more about a man than the most glorious tales,” she added.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi, former President Pranab Mukherjee and former PM Manmohan Singh also paid homage to the leader at Shanti Vana on his 130th birth anniversary.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “On his birth anniversary, we remember our first PM, Pandit Jawaharlal NehruJi, a statesman, visionary, scholar, institution builder and one of the great architects of modern India”.
