He described his jail time as the “greatest joy” of the protests against colonial rule. He spent nearly a decade behind bars on different counts. Most of the times he went to jail for supporting Mahatma Gandhi in his civil disobedience movements. Nehru was elected the first Prime Minister of the country in 1947. After this he remained in this post for the next 17 years i.e. till his death.
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi also posted a tribute to Nehru. He wrote- ‘Today India is celebrating the birth anniversary of its first PM Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru ji. A huge visionary who laid the foundation of our country with brotherhood, egalitarianism and modern outlook. Our effort should be to preserve these values.
