Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders on Friday paid glowing tributes to the party patriarch and former Governor of Gujarat Kailashpati Mishra at a condolence meeting held at Rabindra Bhawan in Patna.
Mishra died a week ago on November 3 at his residence in Patna at the age of 89.
Speaking on the occasion, Gadkari said that Mishra was a dedicated soldier of the party who lived his life on his own terms and became a source of inspiration for millions of youths and party workers.
Swaraj described Mishra as a man who was always eager to work with everyone, including those from opposing parties putting his principles before party ideologies.
