Gopinath Munde Dies of Heart Attack After Road Accident in Delhi


Senior BJP leader and union minister for rural development Gopinath Munde has died in a road accident in Delhi. He was 64.

Mr Munde was on his way to the Delhi airport when his car met with an accident at around 6.20 this morning in the Moti Bagh area of the capital.

Doctors quoted the minister's personal staff as saying that another vehicle crashed into the car on the side that the minister was seated in the rear seat. They said the minister collapsed in the car.

Mr Munde's car was hit by another vehicle, an Indica, at an intersection between Prithviraj Road and Aurobindo Road in Delhi.

The other vehicle, which jumped a traffic signal, hit Mr Munde's car on the passenger's side.

Mr Munde, who reportedly suffered minor injuries, was in major shock when he was rushed to the hospital.

The driver of the Indica has been detained at the Tughlaq Road police station.

Mr Munde's driver and personal assistant were in the front and were unhurt. They rushed him to the trauma centre at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

"There was no spontaneous breathing and no cardiac activity when he was brought to the hospital," a doctor said.

For almost an hour, the doctors tried to revive the minister. He was pronounced dead at 7.20 am.

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan, who had rushed to the hospital, said Mr Munde, who was diabetic, had died of a heart attack.

Former BJP president and union minister Nitin Gadkari said at the hospital that after a post mortem this morning, Mr Munde's body will be taken to the BJP office at 11 Ashoka Road for tributes.

His body will be flown to Maharashtra's Latur around 12 noon, from where it will be taken to Parli in Beed district, Mr Munde's hometown.

Mr Munde's last rites will be performed in Parli on Wednesday.

Mr Munde, who was sworn in as a cabinet minister last week in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Cabinet, was to have taken an early morning flight to Mumbai. He was to have addressed a series of public meetings in Beed, his Lok Sabha constituency.
