Mahatma Gandhi statue unveiled in German Parliament

Indian Parliament Speaker (Lok Sabha), Somnath Chatterjee Saturday left for Germany on a six-day visit during which he will hold wide ranging discussions with top German leaders.

“We, the Parliamentarians and the people of India, stand honoured by your gesture of placing the Mahatma on high pedestal in your Parliament. In fact it is an honour for all the peace-loving people across the world,” Chatterjee told his German counterpart Norbert Lammert during a brief ceremony at the Bundestag.

The Speaker, who is leading an Indian Parliamentary delegation here, thanked his German hosts for choosing him to unveil the bust of the Father of the Nation.
