Glowing tributes were paid by Congress leaders to veteran freedom fighter late Firoz Gandhi on his 49th death anniversary on Tuesday

by lighting candles and placing wreaths on his grave in Parsi cemetery.

Former UPCC secretary, Virendra Kumar Mohiley said that Firoz Gandhi always fought for the cause of the country and never compromised on his principles. As an MP, he vociferously raised the issue of corruption in public office owing to which the then union finance minister had to resign from office.

Convener, Rajkumar Singh said that Mahatma Gandhi had aptly described the qualities of late Firoz Gandhi by saying — if he had seven volunteers like Firoz Gandhi, freedom struggle would have become much easier, Firoz was a person with unusual intelligence and knowledge.

Another Congress leader Mehtab Khan said that Firoz Gandhi was deeply attached with Allahabad in the backdrop of the fact that he started his political career from the city.
