Serving the country as a former Union Minister and an outstanding Parliamentarian for decades, he strengthened the politics of equality. My deepest condolences to his family and supporters,” tweeted Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge.

“Sharad Yadav ji was a person of humble nature along with being the leader of socialism. I learned a lot from him. I express my deepest condolences to his bereaved family members. His contribution to the country will always be remembered,” Congress leader Rahul Gandhi saidin a tweet in Hindi.

Nitish Kumar wrote, “Saddened by the demise of former Union Minister Sharad Yadav. I had a very deep relationship with Sharad Yadav ji. I am shocked and saddened by the news of his demise. He was a strong socialist leader. His demise has caused an irreparable loss to the social and political field. May his soul rest in peace.”

Lalu Prasad Yadav tweeted, “Just got the sad news of Sharadbhai’s death here at night in Singapore. I feel very helpless …  I didn’t want to say goodbye like this. Soulful Tribute!” He also shared a video message from a hospital in Singapore over the platform saying, “Sharad Yadav ji, respected Mulayam Singh Yadav ji, Nitish Kumar ji … Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia and other political leaders … we have all been engaging with politics together.”
