New Delhi, Sep 1 : Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday said that former President Pranab Mukherjee’s demise has “created a void”.
“He (Mukherjee) helmed various posts and always worked as a ‘Sankat Mochan’. Whenever there was a problem in the country, government or even Congress, he worked as a redresser. A void has been created with his demise,” the former Haryana Chief Minister said in a statement.
Mukherjee, who had tested positive for Covid-19, passed away on Monday evening more than 20 days after undergoing a brain surgery and had been on a ventilator since.
