In 1984, following the tragic assassination of his mother and then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi assumed the leadership of the Congress party. Remarkably, at the youthful age of 40, he ascended to the office of India’s Prime Minister in October of the same year, becoming the nation’s youngest leader to hold such a prestigious position. This pivotal moment marked not only a transition in leadership but also ushered in a new era in Indian politics. Under Rajiv Gandhi’s stewardship, the country witnessed a blend of youthful energy and visionary governance, as he embarked on a journey to shape India’s destiny and lead it towards progress and prosperity.
