In a condolence message issued by his office, the Chief Minister underlined that national interest was on top of the mind of the former Prime Minister. It was due to his services to the nation that he was conferred the nation's highest civilian award -- Bharat Ratna.

The late leader, Adityanath said, had imbibed his values and traditions of national service from Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee and Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.
