Several leaders paid their homage on Sunday to mark the birth centenary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, with tributes pouring in from across party lines.

His mother, and Congress President Sonia Gandhi described her as a prime minister for whom there was only one religion — that all Indians were equal children of the motherland.

She fought for secularism, against all those forces seeking to divide the Indian people on lines of religion and caste. She gloried the rich diversity of India, its profound democratic and secular values.
