He was 78.
The doctors announced his death this afternoon, the official said.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said: "Sarode's association dates back to the days of Jan Sangh. It was his efforts that helped the BJP spread its work in areas like Jalgaon and Raver Lok sabha segments. His commitment to the service was commendable."
Sarode's last rites were performed in the evening in Jalgaon.
