Gandhi was assassinated by Nathuram Godse in 1948 at Birla House. The building, located in the heart of Delhi, has since been converted into a museum, and is known as Gandhi Smriti. Modi also paid tribute to those who laid down their lives for the country.
“On Martyrs’ Day, I pay homage to each & every martyr who laid his or her life for our nation. Their bravery & courage will always inspire,” Modi said in another tweet. (IANS)
