The Prime Minister remembered the two leaders for the values they championed.
“Gandhi ji made this world a better place. His ideals, dedication to the poor and struggle against injustice inspire,” Modi said in a tweet.
October 2 is the birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi who is also known as the “Father of the Nation” and Lal Bahadur Shastri, the second Prime Minister of the country.
Modi also shared a video on the microblogging site, showing people engaged in various sanitation activities and taking pledge of giving “shramdaan” (Gift of Labour) on the 147th birth anniversary of Gandhi.
