Indira Gandhi was the daughter of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. Floral tributes are paid at Shakti Sthal, the memorial of Indira Gandhi.

It quoted Indira Gandhi's own words posting with the tweet that read, "If I die a violent death, as some fear and a few are plotting". Kerala Congress leader and former chief minister of the state, Oomen Chandy tweeted, "Today is the Martyrdom Anniversary of the strongest lady India has ever seen, paying tribute to the Iron lady of India, Smt Indira Gandhi".

Sharing the picture on the Instagram account, she captioned it as, "An awesome old photo my masi (aunt) @neelaakhouri sent over with her, my mother @madhumalati, my late grand parents Madhu Jyotsna and Manhar krishna Akhouri with the late former PM of India Indira Gandhi". She is considered as one of the most powerful Prime Ministers of our country.

The then PM's assassination was the result of an outrage over "Operation Blue Star" where she had ordered the storming of troops at Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar.
