Chief Minister today condoled the death of Singapore's founding father and first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.

"Saddened to hear about death of Lee Kuan Yew. Last year during my visit to Singapore, I had announced setting up a chair named after him at Calcutta University," Banerjee tweeted.

Seeking foreign investment in West Bengal, Banerjee had visited in August last year, her first overseas visit after taking office.

91-year-old Lee died of severe pneumonia today.
