Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday condoled the demise of former Chief Minister of the unified State of Andhra Pradesh, Konijeti Rosaiah.
"Saddened by the passing away of Shri K. Rosaiah Garu. I recall my interactions with him when we both served as Chief Ministers and later when he was Tamil Nadu Governor. His contributions to public service will be remembered. Condolences to his family and supporters. Om Shanti," the Prime Minister tweeted.
Rosaiah, a senior Congress leader, held several key portfolios in the past including Governor of Karnataka and Governor of Tamil Nadu. He passed away in Hyderabad today at the age of 88 after a brief illness.
