New Delhi: The nation remembered former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her 34th death anniversary today. Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi paid floral tributes to the former Prime Minister at Shakti Sthal in Delhi. The former Prime Minister, also known as the Iron Lady of India, was assassinated on October 31, 1984, the same year when she had launched Operation Bluestar to crush Punjab militancy. She was the first and, to date, the only woman Prime Minister of India.
Tributes to the Iron Lady poured in on Twitter:

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.
