Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had represented the Amethi Lok Sabha Seat four times. He became the Sixth Prime Minister of India. He has served as the Prime Minister from 1984 to 1989 after the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

Rajiv Gandhi was killed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) during an election rally in Tamil Nadu’s Sriperumbudur on May 21, 1991.

Overseas Congress chief Sam Pitroda, in a series of tweets, said: “Today is the day to pay respect to this great leader who dreamed of India in the 21st century and at the same time reflect on his contribution to India.”

Pitroda worked with him as an advisor on technology missions.

“Rajiv Gandhi’s life was taken away at an early age by a terror attack. His loss left a huge vacuum in politics, leadership, and development in India,” he added.
