Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, opposition leader in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi today led Parliamentarians in paying floral tributes to former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her birth anniversary at Parliament House.

Besides Mukherjee, Swaraj and Sonia, several Union Ministers and MPs, including Jitin Prasada, RPN Singh and Karan Singh, and BJP spokesperson Tarun Vijay paid their tributes.

Vijay said, "We may have differences with Mrs Gandhi but we want to emphasise that we would not bring any party considerations in paying tributes to country's great leaders." A booklet containing the profile of Gandhi brought out in Hindi and English by Lok Sabha Secretariat was also presented to the dignitaries who attended the function.
