AGARTALA, Nov 19 (TIWN): Across Tripura, Congress has observed the birth anniversary of Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

At the Congress headquarter and in many more places of the Agartala city, Gandhi was given floral tributes.

Interim Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday paid tribute to late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her birth anniversary at Shakti Sthal in New Delhi.

Former President Pranab Mukherjee and several other party leaders also paid homage to the late Prime Minister.

"On her birth anniversary, we pay homage to India's first female Prime Minister, the Late Smt Indira Gandhi. Her will and determination led our country to great heights. Her contributions to India's national security, economy & foreign policy will always be cherished," Congress tweeted.

Born on November 19, 1917, to India's first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Kamala Nehru, she served as the first and only woman prime minister from January 1966 to March 1977 and again from January 1980 until her assassination in October 1984.
