New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary on Tuesday and is set to attend programmes related to sanitation and renewable energy.

"Events related to sanitation and renewable energy shall be the focus of the Prime Minister's engagements on Gandhi Jayanti," said a statement from the Prime Minister's Office.

The day will mark the launch of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Mahatma. At the Rashtrapati Bhavan cultural centre, the Prime Minister will attend the closing session of the Mahatma Gandhi International Sanitation Convention — a four-day international conference that has brought together sanitation ministers and other leaders from around the world.
