New Delhi, May 1 (PTI) Paying rich tributes to noted socialist Madhu Limaye on his 95th birth anniversary, Union minister and Lok Janshakti Party chief Ram Vilas Paswan today said he will forever remain an ideal for leaders like him.
“Madhu Limaye was an expert in political, social, economic and foreign affairs. He was a great leader and fighter for social and cultural revolution. After Ram Manohar Lohia, he was the greatest socialist philosopher,” he said in a statement.
Paswan said Limaye’s ideals inspired him to join politics.
In an apparent dig at leaders with socialist background working out an alliance with the Congress to take on the BJP, he said Limaye opposed the congress throughout his life.
