Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Thursday paid tributes to the memory of Shankarrao B. Chavan, who twice served as Maharashtra Chief Minister, on the occasion of his 96th birth anniversary. "Known as a 'headmaster', Chavan was a close confidante of late prime ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. He served the party and country with distinction in different capacities," Gandhi said here in her tribute to the Congressman who died in 2004.
