श्री लाल बहादुर शास्त्री जी सच्चे अर्थों में भारत रत्न थे, उन्होंने अपनी ईमानदारी, सादगी, कर्तव्यनिष्ठा और दृढ़ संकल्प से भारत का नेतृत्व किया। गुदड़ी के लाल शास्त्री जी ने न सिर्फ देश के वीर सैनिकों का मनोबल बढ़ाया बल्कि किसानों को भी आत्मनिर्भर बनाने के लिए भरसक प्रयास किये। pic.twitter.com/IHhrR0rrGj
