Today, on Nehru's 50th death anniversary, Modi paid his tributes by tweeting on the social networking site Twitter.
Nehru was an influential leader and had emerged as a person of paramount importance during the freedom struggle. He is considered to be the architect of the modern India which is a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic. His birthday is celebrated all over the country as Children's Day as he was a favourite among them.
I pay my tributes to our 1st Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on his Punya Tithi.
