New Delhi, Oct 12 (PTI) President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday condoled the death of Bihar Minister Vinod Kumar Singh, saying he was a popular public representative who struggled for the development of the state and well-being of people.
Kumar, minister for backward and extremely backward class welfare, died on Monday at a hospital here due to post-COVID 19 complications. He was 55.
“Very sad to know about the demise of Bihar government’s Cabinet Minister Shri Vinod Kumar Singh. He was a popular public representative and struggled for the development of Bihar and the well being of the people. My condolences to his family and supporters,” Kovind tweeted in Hindi.
Singh, a BJP MLA from Pranpur constituency in Katihar district, had tested positive for COVID-19 on June 28 and subsequently recovered.
Shortly after, however, he suffered a brain haemorrhage and had to be airlifted to a private hospital in Delhi, where he breathed his last. PTI AKV RHL
