Former union minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh passed away on Sunday due to severe post-COVID complications. He was undergoing treatment in New Delhi while his condition deteriorated on Friday. Subsequently, he was admitted to AIIMS on Saturday morning. He was later shifted to the ventilator.
Raghuvansh has recently quit RJD after accusing the party of encouraging nepotism and “feudalism”. He further stated in a letter that five members of “one family” have replaced icons such as Mahatma Gandhi, B R Ambedkar, Jayaprakash Narayan, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia, and Karpoori Thakur in the party’s poster.
Lalu Prasad Yadav condoled the death of Raghuvansh on twitter. “I told you the day before yesterday, you are not going anywhere. But you went so far. I am very sad and I will miss you.” Yadav wrote on Twitter.
Additionally, Home minister Amit Shah has also been admitted to AIIMS in Delhi for post COVID care after he complained about breathing problems. Currently, India has the second-highest COVID-19 cases in the world.
