Below are some of his tweets: 

Meanwhile, the Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, taking a swipe at the BJP, said the the saffron party should first pursue the path of truth shown by Mahatma Gandhi and then talk about him. "It was the order of Gandhiji to pursue the path of truth. First, the BJP should pursue the path of truth and then talk about Gandhiji," the Congress leader said.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi proposed the 'Einstein Challenge' to ensure that the ideals of Bapu are remembered by future generations. PM Modi proposed the challenge in a column written for The New York Times on Mahatma Gandhi's 150 birth anniversary.
