Sunday, 18 February 2024 | Pioneer News Service | New Delhi

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday paid tributes to socialist icon and former Bihar chief minister Karpoori Thakur on his death anniversary and said he worked for the rights of the backward people and women throughout his life. The government last month had announced the country’s highest civilian award Bharat Ratna for Thakur.

In a post in Hindi on X, Shah said Thakur set highest standards of honesty and sacrifice in his social life.  Thakur worked for the rights of backward people and women throughout his life and carried out important works to make education system accessible to all, he said.

Shah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought into light the works of Thakur by honouring him with the Bharat Ratna.
