ITANAGARNovember 24: Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has expressed profound sorrow over unfortunate demise of Former Union Minister and a senior congress leader Late Murli Deora.
In a condolence letter to Milind Deora, Son of late Murli Deora, CM wrote "It pains my heart to write to you at this moment of extreme grief. I humbly endure to share with you the saddest times of your life though I know that it would be hard to do so and ease the pain you and your family are going through.
In his death we have lost a veteran Congress leader, who served the country in different capacities. Besides, proving his calibre in governance by holding portfolios of Petroleum and Natural Gas and corporate affairs during the UPA-1 regime, the Congress stalwart had also served as the Mumbai Congress President for 22 years. A four time Parliamentarian in the Lower House and a sitting member of the Upper House, Deora was an active member of the Red Cross Movement. During his tenure as Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Late Deora led oil diplomacy in Myanmar, Algeria and Egypt, and held talks with ministers from Sudan, Chad, Ethiopia and Comoros.
At this moment of grief, me, my family and people of Arunachal Pradesh extend our solidarity with you and share the pain inflicted on you and your family by this irreparable loss.
I pray the Almighty God to bestow you and your family with strength to bear the loss of your beloved father. May the departed soul rest in peace in heavenly abode” the message further added.
