New Delhi: Bihar Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ashwini K Choubey, one of the oldest friends of former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi, broke down inconsolably while remembering the departed and said that he lost his brother today.

Sushil Modi passed away at Delhi's All-India Institute of Medical Sciences on Monday evening after battling cancer for seven months. He was 72.

"Sushil Kumar Modi ji was just not my friend but he was my family. Today I lost my brother, I can't explain it. Who was always with me, he always supported me and gave me suggestions whenever I needed them. Sometimes I used to scold him too, but he never felt bad. I had never imagined that I will have to see this day as well. Sushil Modi ji was a very polite leader. Whenever he used to get angry with someone, he used to say to me, 'Choubey ji yeh mujhse lagta hai ki daat diya uss aadmi ko.' I have never had such a leader who was dedicated to his party, the BJP. He was a computer who used to learn everything very fast. Like a computer, he used to remember each piece of data. He knew all the fields," Choubey said in a self-made video on Tuesday.

Union Minister of State Choubey said that Sushil Modi ji was not just a leader but a member of his family for 55 years.

"I have lost my best friend. Extremely sad, and heartbreaking. May Baba Kedarnath give him a place in his holy feet. Tearful tribute! 100 times bow before you!" Choubey posted on X.
