“On his Jayanti, I bow to Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee. Dr Mookerjee is remembered as a fine educationist, a wonderful administrator and a stalwart who fought for India’s freedom as well as unity,” Modi tweeted.

Modi also shared a picture of Mookerjee with Babasaheb Ambedkar, and said they were ministerial colleagues who had “futuristic vision for India’s growth”.

Mookerjee was also a barrister and academician. He served as Minister for Industry and Supply in the first cabinet post-Independence.

He founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh in 1951 which later became the Bharatiya Janata Party in 1980.
