In the extremely shocking and sad demise of Shri Gopinath Munde, the nation has lost a great leadership.
He had come up from a humble background and built his strong base in the masses to become a national leader. He was a leader who had insight into both, organizational as well as administrative issues.
As Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra and also as deputy leader of opposition in Lok Sabha he has made a mark on his abilities.
In his demise, I have lost a colleague, under whose guidance several like me and I myself worked for decades. It is an irreparable loss to all of us.
