New Delhi
August 25, 2016

I am deeply grieved to learn about the demise of Shri A R Kidwai, former Governor of Bihar, Haryana and West Bengal.

In a life dedicated to public service, Shri Kidwai upheld the highest Gandhian values and served the Nation as a freedom fighter, an able administrator, a Member of the Parliament and an educationist.

I convey my deepest condolences to the bereaved members of the family and join the Nation in praying for eternal peace for the departed soul.
