Lok Sabha Speaker Birla to attend Mulayam Singh’s last rites

New Delhi, Oct 10 (PTI) Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has cut short his visit to Rajasthan’s Kota and will attend last rites of Mulayam Singh Yadav, the secretariat of Lower House said on Monday.

  Birla condoled the demise of former Uttar Pradesh chief minister, and is returning to Delhi early from his busy schedule in his parliamentary constituency Kota Bundi, the Lok Sabha Secretariat said in an official statement.

Birla will attend the last rites of Yadav in Saifai on Tuesday, the statement said.

The Samajwadi Party patriarch died at Gurugram’s Medanta Hospital earlier in the day after a prolonged illness.

“Socialist leader, pillar of socialism, leader of the masses Mulayam Singh Yadav is no more among us. He helped the deprived, poor, needy people of the society and became their voice,” Birla said.

Birla said in 17th Lok Sabha, despite his ill health Yadav was regular in the Parliament and was participating in deliberation which speaks of his commitment to and faith in democracy. PTI JTR KVK KVK
