Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated on 2 October every year to mark the birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi — popularly called Mahatma Gandhi — and regarded as the Father of the Nation.

To mark this special occasion, President Ram Nath Kovind asked the nation to take a pledge that “we will continue to strive for making India a country of Gandhiji's dreams while adhering to his teachings, ideals and values.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on his 152nd birth anniversary, saying his life and ideas will inspire every generation to walk the path of their duties.

"I bow to respected Bapu on Gandhi Jayanti. His noble principles are globally relevant and give strength to millions," he added.

The prime minister also visited Raj Ghat to pay floral tributes.

An interfaith prayer meeting was also held at Raj Ghat, where Mahatma Gandhi's favourite devotional songs were rendered.

Union home minister Amit Shah paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi in a tweet in Hindi, saying that he inspired the whole world to walk on the path of peace and non-violence.

Defense minister Rajnath Singh called Gandhi a “towering personality blessed with tremendous willpower and immense wisdom, he provided exemplary leadership to India’s freedom movement.”

On the occasion of International Day of Non-Violence, which is observed annually on October 2 on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres stressed the need to “usher in a new era of peace and tolerance” and urged countries to pay heed to the peace activist's message of non-violence.
