Pranab Mukherjee, the elder statesman of Indian politics, left for his heavenly abode on Monday. Mr. Mukherjee, the former Indian President, was tested positive for Coronavirus and had been in a coma followed by a brain surgery earlier this month.

His son, Abhijit Mukherjee confirmed the news through his tweet. He wrote:

“With a Heavy Heart, this is to inform you that my father Shri Pranab Mukherjee has just passed away in spite of the best efforts of Doctors of RR Hospital and prayers, duas and prarthanas from people throughout India! I thank all of You,”

A 7-day mourn in the state has been announced for the former President.

On Monday morning, the doctors of the RR Hospital in Delhi had reported a deterioration in Mr. Mukherjee’s condition. He slipped into a septic shock due to lung infection. Mr. Mukherjee was admitted to the hospital on August 10 and had undergone brain surgery for the removal of a clot in his brain. He was also tested positive for Coronavirus.

He posted:

“On a visit to the hospital for a separate procedure, I have tested positive for COVID-19 today. I request the people who came in contact with me in the last week, to please self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19,”

Last week, the doctors revealed that Mr. Mukherjee’s “renal parameters are slightly deranged”. He was President of India from 2012 to 2017.

On Monday a small group of protesters led by Mr Borah – claiming to be anti-beef activists – attempted to block the main gate at Guwahati Zoo as vehicles carrying beef for tigers were trying to pass. Zoo authorities managed to disperse them with help from the police, official sources said.

The protesters shouted slogans demanding a carpet ban on cow slaughter.

“In Hindu society we give importance to protection of cow, but it is the staple food for carnivores in the zoo and part of government supply. Our objection is – why serve beef? Why not other meat?” Mr Borah asked reporters.
