PM Modi, Azad condoles the demise of Prof. Chaman Lal Gupta



Jammu: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and  Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to former Union minister and veteran BJP leader Chaman Lal Gupta, who passed away earlier in the day.

Modi tweeted, “Shri Chaman Lal Gupta Ji will be remembered for numerous community service efforts. He was a dedicated legislator and strengthened the BJP across Jammu and Kashmir. Pained by his demise. My thoughts are with his family and supporters in this hour of grief. Om Shanti.

“Prof. Gupta, was a senior scholarly leader of BJP who lived a very simple life. He served the people of J&K as MLA, MP and Union Minister. As Union Minister he maintained a very good rapport with the people and other political leaders across party lines. He had the distinction of being the first Union Minister of BJP from J&K state during Atalji’s Govt. My heartfelt condolence. I pray almighty to give strength and courage to his son Anil Gupta and other family members to bear this irreparable loss. May the departed soul rest in peace.” Said Mr. Azad.
