"Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave Indira Gandhi," Rahul tweeted about his grandmother.

Congress leader Anand Sharma said: "A grateful nation recalls her historic contribution in building a strong and self-reliant India and her martyrdom. Her memory shall continue to inspire generations to follow."

Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said: "Her great love for the country and dedication towards the welfare of people would always be an inspiration."

Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav called her the "great iron lady".
