Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Former Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Tuesday condoled the demise of Bharatiya Janata Party MP Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan and said it is a great loss for the party and the organisation.

"In the morning I heard the news that he has died. He was suffering from COVID. I feel very sad that he was 10 years younger than me. We worked together in government and organisation," she said.

"I used to visit his home in Khandwa during polls. I have seen his work. He was a ground-level worker. It is very difficult to find such a leader and a worker. When such a worker departs, it becomes a great loss of party and organisation," Mahajan told ANI.
