Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered condolences to Tandon’s family and said he will be remembered for his untiring efforts to serve society.

Union defence minister Rajnath Singh expressed his grief over the death of the veteran politician. He tweeted that Tandon was popular among karyakartas (workers) and was committed towards development.

According to Medanta director Dr Rakesh Kapoor, Lalji Tandon was on ventilator following a minor surgery.

“Tandon was admitted at Medanta Hospital Lucknow on the morning of June 11 with problems in breathing, difficulty in urination and fever. He was kept under supervision of doctors,” said Dr Kapoor.

His Covid-19 sample was reported negative at the time of admission.

Doctors detected a problem in his liver during precautionary health tests for which he was further investigated through a CT guided procedure. Post procedure, he developed internal abdominal bleeding for which an emergency operation was performed.

After the operation, Tandon was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where his condition kept on deteriorating. He was under strict supervision of medical experts.
