Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan died on Thursday, his son Chirag Paswan tweeted.

Ram Vilas Paswan (74), who was the Lok Janshakti Party patron, had undergone a heart surgery at a hospital here a few days ago.

He was the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution.

Chirag Paswan tweeted, “Papa…you are not in this world today but I know no matter where you are, you will always be with me. Miss you papa.”

“Saddened beyond words; there is a void in our nation that will perhaps never be filled,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Paswan’s demise.

President Ram Nath Kovind was among the first to offer his condolences.

He had been in active politics for more than five decades and was one of the country’s most noted Dalit leaders.
