Lata Mangeshkar tweeted, "Today is the death anniversary of India's first and only woman Prime Minister Indira Gandhiji. I pay homage to her." She also shared a throwback photograph in which she is seen with Indira Gandhi.
"I had a beautiful relation with her. She was keenly interested in music and even I have heard that she was a good singer herself," Mangeshkar added.
Indira Gandhi was assassinated on October 31, 1984, by her bodyguards a few months after she ordered the storming of the Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar to counter the Punjab insurgency.
She held office from January 1966 to March 1977, and again from January 14, 1980 till her death.
