Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday paid tribute to RSS ideologue Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya on his death anniversary. Taking to Twitter, Shah called Pandit Upadhaya a 'legend'. The tweet in Hindi roughly translates to: "Pandit Deendayal Upadhaya was a legend who worked to give the country an ideology, whose main purpose is not to gain power but to re-establish the nation as the world's guru. Panditji has given the country a unified human philosophy in which the interests of everyone, from a person to society are contained."

Saluting the RSS ideologue in another tweet, he wrote, "Panditji believed that unless we bring development to the poorest of the poor in the country, by connecting them to mainstream development, country's freedom does not make sense. I salute such great thinkers." 

 

BJP pays tribute

The official Twitter handle of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) too paid tribute to the RSS ideologue. The tweet in Hindi reads: "We salute the great nationalist, outstanding organiser and the pioneer of integral humanism, Pandit Deendayal Upadhaya on his death anniversary."
