Prime Minister Narendra Modi today condoled the death of NCP leader R R Patil saying his death left a “void” in Maharashtra’s politics.

“My thoughts are with Shri R R Patil’s family. (I) am saddened to know of his demise, which leaves a void in Maharashtra politics,” Modi tweeted.

Patil died in Mumbai from cancer at the age of 57.

Patil, who was Maharashtra’s Home Minister during the 26/11 terror attacks, breathed his last at Lilavati Hospital where he was on life support, hospital sources said.

The NCP leader, a six-term MLA from Tasgaon in Sangli district, is survived by his mother, wife, and two daughters.
