Jharkhand's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Upendra Nath Das died here Monday after a prolonged battle with cancer. He was 56.

Das had been admitted to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi where he passed away. He is survived by his wife, son and daughter.

He represented the Simeria assembly constituency of Chatra district. He first became a legislator on a Janata Party ticket in 1977 and was later elected for three terms on a BJP ticket. He was associated with the Sangh Parivar for a long time.

His last rites will be conducted in Hazaribagh district Tuesday.

The BJP expressed sorrow over Das' death. "His death is an irreparable loss for the party. He was involved in politics for the sake of the people of the state," said P.N. Singh, state BJP president. (IANS)
