Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday paid tribute to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru on the occasion of Martyrs' Day (Shaheed Diwas) and said that their sacrifices will forever inspire the country.
"Shaheed Sukhdev, Bhagat Singh and Rajguru did not just fight for the country's independence while they were alive but through their sacrifice the passion of own-rule in the hearts of the countrymen. These three patriots are immortal symbols of the Independence Movement who will forever inspire us for service and unity to the nation," Shah's tweet, roughly translated in English from Hindi, read.
Congress leader and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi too paid tribute to the three freedom fighters.
"Hundreds of salutations to Shaheed Bhagat Singhji, Rajguruji and Sukhdevji who sacrificed their lives for the nation's independence," Gandhi's tweet, translated from Hindi, read.
The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also took to Twitter to pay tribute to the three freedom fighters.
