According to Modi, who described him as the "great son of Maa Bharati," such "stalwarts epitomise fortitude and patriotism." In addition, PM Modi mentioned Azad and Lokmanya Tilak, whose birthday also fell on Saturday, in a passage from Mann Ki Baat.

Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, and Ramesh Pokhriyal, well known as "Nishank," a former minister in the Union, were among those who paid tribute to the independence warriors.
