Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi also paid their tributes to Gandhiji. Every year, the nation pays homage to Mahatma Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who was fondly called Bapu, on his birth anniversary on October 2, which is also known as Gandhi Jayanti. Born in 1869 in Gujarat’s Porbandar, Mahatma Gandhi had his early political training in South Africa while working among the local Indian community facing discrimination.

Gandhi was for self-sufficiency at village-level: Tamil Nadu Governor

Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit said Mahatma Gandhi had brought about social cohesion by working against ‘untouchability’.
“He (Gandhi) propagated the concept of trusteeship and wanted people to abhor accumulation of wealth for themselves and their families. All these were his outpourings which went beyond the political spectrum,” the governor said.
When the Sabarmati ashram in Ahmedabad was started by Gandhi, there were initially 25 inmates of whom 13 were Tamilians, he said.
