Paying tributes to late BJP leader and Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat Tuesday described him as a political personality who always worked for interest.

Parrikar was diligent, committed and focused in his goals, Bhagwat said in a statement issued by the RSS.

He said Parrikar, the former head of Sangh's unit, was a leader who dedicated everything for development of his state with due diligence.

Talking about Parrikar's tenure as Defence Minister, Bhagwat said he guided the defence establishment in a new direction.

"Amiable, studious, strong-willed, work-oriented and someone who had no other thought in his mind except interest, was, indeed, a rare public figure," Bhagwat said, adding that he will always be remembered as an ideal social, political worker.

Parrikar, 63, passed away on March 17. He was battling with cancer for more than a year.
