The Nehru-Gandhi family always stood for the country and worked sincerely for its development. From Motilal Nehru to young generation members like Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, their services for the country as well as for the Congress party are unmatchable. The present Congress President Sonia Gandhi also has been performing excellently as the Congress President with an innovative vision and pro-poor ideology.
Motilal Nehru, an advocate by profession, in 1921 had submitted before the court while appearing for a case that he gave up his lawyer profession to be engaged in social service. He also had informed that he is leaving the job of a lawyer which, at that time, fetched about Rs. 5 lac per annum. Only a true lover of nation can take such an unbelievable decision- to quit a lucrative profession and work for the nation. After Motilal Nehru, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, now Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra are all following Motilal Nehru’s footsteps.
Addressing a function organized at the Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the great freedom fighter Motilal Nehru, Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi paid rich tributes to the great leader. “Motilal Nehru believed that the county was above any community or sect” said Mrs. Gandhi. She also remembered that Motilal Nehru laid the foundation of modern inclusive parliamentary democracy.
