Pranab's life mirrored 50 years of India's history: Sonia

Aug 31, 2020 22:50 IST

Expressing great shock over the demise of former President Pranab Mukherjee, Sonia Gandhi on Monday said she learnt a lot from the Congress veteran, who brought distinction to every post he held. 

In her condolence letter to Pranab’s daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee, the Congress chief said his life over the past five decades mirrored 50 years of India's history. 

She further said Pranab Da had been such an integral and prominent part of national life, the Congress party and the central government for over five decades, it is hard to imagine how we can do without his wisdom, experience, sage advice and deep understanding of so many subjects." 

She said Pranab played a crucial role both in shaping the course of events as well as actively participating in them, whether as a cabinet minister, parliamentarian or President of India.
