'His colourful political life was built on a combination of constant efforts, hard work and success'

BNP on Monday expressed deep shock at the death of former Indian president Pranab Mukherjee, saying he always saw Bangladesh with affection.

In a condolence message, the party said Mukherjee’s demise was a matter of deep sorrow and grief.

“The people of Bangladesh and BNP are equally empathic to his death as the people of India. Late  Pranab Mukherjee always saw Bangladesh with love and goodwill,” it said.

It said Pranab Mukherjee was a veteran, experienced and prudent politician of this sub-continent. “His colourful political life was built on a combination of constant efforts, hard work and success.”

The party prayed for the eternal peace of the former Indian president’s departed soul and conveyed profound sympathy to the bereaved family members, admirers and the people of India.

Mukherjee, who had been in a coma after a brain surgery early this month, died at the age of 84 on Monday.

"With a heavy heart, this is to inform you that my father Shri Pranab Mukherjee has just passed away inspite of the best efforts of doctors of RR Hospital and prayers, duas and prarthanas from people throughout India! I thank all of you," his son Abhijit Mukherjee tweeted.

Pranab Mukherjee was admitted to the hospital on August 10 and underwent the surgery the same day for the removal of a clot in the brain. He had also tested positive for Covid-19.
