Bihar’s former Chief Minister Janata Dal (United) leader Jagannath Mishra breathed his last in Delhi today. He passed away because of a prolonged illness. He died at the age of 82.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has expressed sadness over the tragic loss of Bihar’s leader. The state administration has declared three-day mourning in his honor. Other leaders have also shown their grief over the demise of one of the tallest leaders of Bihar. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also extended her condolences to the late leader’s family.

Remembering the leader, Nitish Kumar said, “Jagannath Mishra was a famous leader and educationist. He made an invaluable contribution to the politics of Bihar and India. His death is an irreparable loss in the field of politics, society, and education.”

Lalu Prasad Yadav and Jagannath Mishra had both been accused in the fodder scam case. But last year, he was acquitted form the case.

He began his career as an economics professor at Bihar University and then went on to become Chief Minister of Bihar for three terms. He became the Chief Minister from Congress party. He had also served the Union cabinet as well in his political lifespan.

In later stages, he quit from Congress party and joined the National Congress Party (NCP) and the Janata Dal (United). At present, he was a member of Bhartiya Jan Congress (Rashtriya).

Now, the former Chief Minister will be cremated with proper state honors.
