Earlier in the day, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi paid tribute to Indira Gandhi at Shakti Sthal in the national capital on her 37th death anniversary.
Indira Gandhi served as the first and only woman Prime Minister of India from January 1966 to March 1977 and again from January 1980 until her assassination in October 1984.
She was shot dead by two of her own bodyguards at her official residence at Akbar Road on October 31, 1984, which led to anti-Sikh riots in several parts of the country.
