On Monday, Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, and chief ministers of States had condoled the demise of the late leader. In a tweet, Singh had said, "Anguished by the demise of Assam's former Chief Minister, Shri Tarun Gogoi ji. Blessed with a warm personality he made a notable contribution to Assam's development and public life. My heartfelt condolences to his family and supporters. Om Shanti!"
