Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday will attend an inter-faith prayer meeting, a government release has said.

The meeting will be held on the 70th anniversary of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, at Gandhi Smriti in Delhi. The day is marked as Martyr’s Day.

Modi mentioned January 30 and hailed Gandhi’s ideals and narrated how his non-violence movement showed India a new path in his latest monthly radio programme Mann ki Baat.

“The path of peace and non-violence is the path of Bapu and this is applicable not only for India or the world but also for a person or a family or a society,” Modi said, urging people to tread the same path.
