The Indian people admire him for his sound leadership and unyielding fighting spirit in the cause of national liberation and independence.

General Secretary of the India-Vietnam Solidarity Committee of West Bengal state, Dr Prava Samantaray, lauded the late President as a leader who inspired and guided Vietnam to defeat major global powers like the French colonialists, the American imperialists, and the Japanese fascists, adding that Ho Chi Minh is her idol and also a great thinker.

Vice President for the Americas and the Caribbean of the International Democratic Women’s Federation, Elizabeth Tortosa, who is the wife of the Secretary General of the Communist Party of Venezuela, Jesus Faria Tortosa, shared her memories about meeting President Ho in 1965.

Elizabeth arrived in Vietnam as part of a campaign for the release of her husband, who was in bad health in prison. She recalled that during the meeting with President Ho in Hanoi, the President inquired about her husband’s health and expressed his support for the campaign.

“I was impressed by the simple style, wisdom, and revolutionary modesty of the President,” she said.

The meeting was one of the biggest political lessons of her life, she said, and President Ho was among the great revolutionary leaders of the 20th century.
