Modi Pays Tribute to Morarji Desai

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday paid tributes to India’s first non-Congress prime minister Morarji Desai, and said his role in resisting the Emergency and steering the nation in the period after that was exemplary.

Desai, a veteran lawmaker who held many ministerial portfolios at the Centre and was also chief minister of erstwhile Bombay State, was born on February 29 in 1896.

His birth year being a leap year, tributes are often paid to him a day before.
