Panaji, July 8 (UNI) Goa Governor S C Jamir and Chief Minister Digambar Kamat today expressed their shock and profound grief over the death of former Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar.

Mr Jamir, in a condolence message from Nagaland, described Chandra shekhar as one among the many national stalwarts who made a lasting contribution to the country besides carving a niche for himself in the hearts of the people.

''As a humanist with a pragmatic approach to the problems touching national life and interests, Chandra shekhar had distinguished himself as an elderly statesman with maturity of mind and sagacity,'' Mr Jamir stated.

India lost one of her illustrious sons who played a leading role in national politics, he added.

In a separate message, Chief Minister Digambar Kamat said Chandra shekhar, as a young turk in politics, had always served the masses, particularly the down-trodden and the weaker sections, irrespective of caste, creed and religion.

''As one among the mass leaders India had produced, he had worked for the betterment of the people selflessly,'' Mr Kamat added.
