Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday paid tributes to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay on his 105th birth anniversary, saying his philosophy of integral humanism and ‘antodaya’ continues to inspire many.
Born on this day in 1916 in Mathura, Upadhyay was a founder member of the Bharatiya Jan Sangh, the progenitor to the BJP.
Naidu said Upadhyay was a great nationalist, an exceptional organizer, a visionary thinker, and a dedicated social worker.
