A bust of Mahatma Gandhi was unveiled on Thursday in the Bundestag (parliament) building of Germany by Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee.

In a brief ceremony, organised on the occasion, Chatterjee told his German counterpart Norbert Lammert: "We, the parliamentarians and the people of India stand honoured by your gesture of placing the Mahatma on high pedestal in your parliament.

"In fact, it is an honour for all the peace loving people across the world."

Chatterjee is heading a parliamentary delegation to Germany on a six-day visit. The other members of the delegation are Kalraj Mishra, SD Prasad Yadav, Mohan Rawale, Venkatesh Naik, Ram Singh Kaswan, Santhosh Bagrodia and Nakul Das Rai.
