He further said that Parrikar was a true son of soil who served the nation till his last breath even though he was suffering from chronic debilitating illness.
“Mr Parrikar was seen in action up till his last days, so much was his level of dedication towards his duties. Living on the principle of ‘Simple living and high thinking’, very few men can even think to achieve that mental level”, Raina said and added that he will continue to live in our hearts, our memories for eternity.
