Lost A Brother Who...’: Union minister Ashwini...

Union minister ashwini Kumar Choubey mourned the death of sushil kumar modi, the former deputy chief minister of bihar and ex-Rajya Sabha mp who passed away on monday at the age of 72 after battling cancer. The emotional union minister said on tuesday that he lost his brother and could not describe his pain in words as he remembered Modi. “I have lost my brother, my friend who was always by my side. I cannot explain my loss in words. I never thought I would have to face such a bad day ever,” ashwini Choubey said as he broke down in a video message.

“Sushil Kumar Modi ji was just not my friend but he was my family. I can’t explain it. He always supported me and gave me suggestions whenever I needed them. Sometimes I used to scold him too, but he never felt bad. sushil modi ji was a very polite leader. Whenever he used to get angry with someone, he used tell me, ‘Choubey ji yeh mujhse lagta hai ki daat diya uss aadmi ko.’ I have never had such a leader who was dedicated to his party, the bjp,” the Union minister said in the video.

The last rites of senior bjp leader and former deputy chief minister of bihar, sushil kumar modi, will take place around 6 pm in patna on tuesday, party sources said. Modi, 72, who was suffering from cancer, died in a New delhi hospital on monday evening.

“The mortal remains of sushil modi will be brought from delhi to patna around 11.30 am and taken to his house in Rajendra Nagar. Later, his body will be taken to the bihar assembly and the bjp state headquarters where party workers will pay their tribute to the departed leader, said a senior bihar bjp member. The funeral will take place at Digha Ghat Crematorium in patna, he said, adding, bjp national president jp nadda is likely to be present. He will be cremated with full state honours, a statement issued by the Chief Minister’s office said. Modi served as the deputy chief minister of bihar from 2005 to 2013, and again between 2017 and 2020.
