Statement by Vijay Kalantri , President, All India Association of Industries
I have personally lost a good friend in Late Shri Gopinathrao Munde, Union Minister of Rural Development, Panchayati Raj and Drinking Water and Sanitation, a forthright gentleman , able administrator and man with a human face.
The state of Maharashtra has lost a dynamic leader which is a great loss to the State . Shri Munde worked selflessly for the downtrodden and always looked at problems and tackled issues in a positive manner. Shri Munde was a man who knew the ground realities and problems and issues and resolved them selflessly.
His dedicated contribution to public life will long be remembered and he will continue to live in the hearts of the people of Maharashtra.
