Modi pays homage to Rajiv Gandhi
New Delhi, May 21: BJP leader and prime minister designate Narendra Modi Wednesday paid homage to late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi on his 23rd death anniversary in a message on social networking web site twitter.

"My homage to former PM Shri Rajiv Gandhi on his death anniversary," Modi wrote on Twitter.

Rajiv Gandhi served as the sixth prime minister of India from Oct 31, 1984-Dec 2, 1989. He took office after the 1984 assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, his mother, to become the youngest Indian premier.

Gandhi remained Congress President until the elections in 1991. While campaigning for the elections, he was assassinated by a suicide bomber from the LTTE.
