Prime Minister Narendra Modi

New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to ‘Lok Nayak’ Jayaprakash Narayan on his 118th birth anniversary and remembered his contribution to the fight for India’s freedom.

“I bow to Loknayak JP on his Jayanti. He valiantly fought for India’s freedom and when our democratic ethos was under attack, he led a strong mass movement to protect it. For him, there was nothing above national interest and people’s welfare,” PM Modi said in a series of tweets.

The PM also remembered social activist Nanaji Deshmukh who was Loknayak JP’s one of the most devout followers. Modi paid tributes to Nanahi for his contribution to the country on the occasion of his 104th birth anniversary.

“The great Nanaji Deshmukh was one of Loknayak JP’s most devout followers. He worked tirelessly to popularise JP’s thoughts and ideals. His own work towards rural development motivates us. Remembering Bharat Ratna Nanaji Deshmukh on his Jayanti,” the PM said in another tweet.

He said, “India is proud that legends like Loknayak JP and Nanaji Deshmukh were born in this land. Today is a day to rededicate ourselves towards fulfilling their vision for our nation.”
