    Ahmedabad, March 1: Congress MP from Banaskantha, Mukesh Gadhvi, on Friday passed away at a private hospital here, party sources said. Gadhvi, 50, was admitted to Sterling Hospital here ten days back after he suffered a brain stroke. He died of multiple organ failure, sources said.

    Gadhvi was a two-time MP from Banaskantha and three-time MLA from Danta between 1998 and 2009. He is survived by wife, two daughters and a son. His father late B K Gadhvi was the Union Minister of State for Finance during the Rajiv Gandhi government and had also been the Gujarat unit party president.

    Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi also expressed grief at Gadhvi's demise. Modi tweeted: "Sad to know about the demise of Banaskantha MP Mukesh Gadhvi. My condolences to his family. May his soul rest in peace."
