"Respectful tribute to the architect of modern India, the first Prime Minister of the country, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru ji on his death anniversary.

Priyanka Vadra also posted on X and said that they are proud of the democracy, whose foundation was laid by Nehru.

"India is such a vast country with so much legitimate diversity that it cannot be allowed to trample people and their ideas by the so-called 'strong man'. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru believed that the kind of diversity that exists in India, only a democratic structure can keep India united in which different cultural, political and socio-economic tendencies and aspirations get freedom of expression. With the cooperation of many great leaders, he laid the foundation of such a democracy, which we are proud of today," Priyanka said.
