Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has shared his deepest condolences on the death of his father Anand Singh Singh, who breathed his last today at AIIMS Delhi. In a letter addressed to his family and closed ones, Yogi Adityanath wrote that he is deeply saddened by the demise of his father. He taught him the values of honesty, hard work and commitment towards the betterment of the society.

Expressing his desire to pay respects to his father in his last moments, Yogi Adityanath said that he was unable to do so because of India’s fight against coronavirus pandemic and his responsibility towards 23 crore citizens of Uttar Pradesh. Moreover, he wouldn’t be able to attend the last rites, which will take place tomorrow, April, 21, due to the same reason.

In his letter, Yogi Adityanath also requested his mother and closed ones to conduct the last rites in presence of a small number of people and follow the guidelines of lockdown. He further promised that he will come to pay his respects after the lockdown.
