It was on this day that Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were executed, a few hours ahead of schedule, after the trio were sentenced to death in the Lahore conspiracy case.

He also remembered socialist leader Dr Ram Manohar Lohia on his birth anniversary and described him as "a scholar and original thinker. He inspires people across party lines."

Modi also put out a copy of Lohia's letter written to Mahatma Gandhi from Bareilly Central Jail on April 30, 1941 whereby he introduced one Hari Dutt Kandpal from Almora to Gandhi, saying Kandpal, who was a firm believer in non- violence, wanted to meet him after being released from jail.

The Prime Minister also greeted Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati of Kanchi Mutt on the special occasion of his Sahasra Chandra Darshan and gave him his best wishes.

"My warmest greetings to Pujya Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati ji of Kanchi Mutt on the special occasion of his Sahasra Chandra Darshan. "Pujya Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati ji has devoted his life to service and spirituality. I pray for his good health and long life," he tweeted.
