Sinha said Karunanidhi was “most loved, admired and respected leader and a real role model for everybody.”

The 94-year-old leader died at Chennai after prolonged illness on Tuesday. “His passing away is an heart-breaking news for all of us,” the BJP MP from Patna Sahib told PTI over phone.

It would be apt to describe him as the “last mughul” of Indian politics, Sinha, who served as Union minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee ministry, said.
