The Congress party also hailed Indira Gandhi for her lifelong dedication and service to the nation. It tweeted: "She represented strength. She epitomized sacrifice. She personified service.
A billion salutes to the Iron Lady of India, our very first woman Prime Minister, a true Bharat Ratna, Smt Indira Gandhi, on her death anniversary."
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh tweeted, "World leaders will gather in Glasgow soon. But Indira Gandhi was ONLY PM, other than the host, to attend 1st UN Conference on Environment, Stockholm, in 1972.
