“Anguished by the demise of MP & former Union Minister, Shri Sanwar Lal Jat. This is a big loss for the BJP & the nation. My condolences,” tweeted Modi.
“Shri Sanwar Lal Jat worked extensively for wellbeing of villages & farmers. My thoughts are with his family & supporters in this sad hour,” he added.
He had fell unconscious during a meeting chaired by party chief Amit Shah in Jaipur on 22 July and was rushed to Jaipur's Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital.
