Congress president Sonia Gandhi has condoled the passing away of former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra.
In her condolence message, Gandhi said as a three-time Congress chief minister of Bihar, Union Cabinet Minister and PCC president on many occasions, Mishra always stood for the interests of the deprived and the marginalised minorities in society.
He will be remembered for a long time to come, Gandhi said.
Mishra died on Monday following a prolonged illness, family sources said here.
The 82-year-old leader had been suffering from cancer and was undergoing treatment in the national capital, where he breathed his last in the morning, they said.
