New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday paid tribute to former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on his first death anniversary and said he “inspired the youth in the country to dream big”.
“Remembering Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. A man who touched the hearts of millions and inspired the young to dream big. His light will shine on,” Gandhi said on his official Twitter account.
Kalam had collapsed while delivering a lecture to the students of the Indian Institute of Management in Shillong in Meghalaya on July 27 last year. He was rushed to the Bethany hospital, where he was declared dead due to a massive cardiac arrest.
