Patna: Politicians in Patna across party line offered tribute to the architect of the 'Total Revolution' Jaya Prakash Narayan to mark his 117th birth anniversary on Friday by placing flowers at his two statues in the state capital and visiting the veteran socialist's historical home in Kadam Kuan.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, along with other Janata Dal – U leaders put wreaths on the statue of Narayan located at the Income Tax Roundabout on Bailey Road.

Kumar, as many times in the past, said that JP's words were as relevant today as they were over four decades ago.

"Loknayak Jaya Prakash Narayan called for a total revolution against social ills that we must not forget today. They are still relevant today as they were when he inspired millions of youths of India to stand up against social discrimination and we must continue to follow on his idols if we want to create a better society," the Chief Minister said.

Kumar was accompanied by Bihar Governor Fagu Chauhan and other members of the Janata Dal – U.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders including Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi visited Charkha Samiti, the former home of Narayan now turned into a shrine, in Kadam Kuan area to pay their annual tribute to the socialist leader whose call for Total Revolution in the seventies brought down the then Indira Gandhi government.
