    Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled the demise of Amar Singh saying, "Amar Singh Ji was an energetic public figure. In the last few decades, he witnessed some of the major political developments from close quarters. He was known for his friendships across many spheres of life. Saddened by his demise. Condolences to his friends & family. Om Shanti."

    "Saddened to know about the death of senior leader and parliamentarian Amar Singh," Defence Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted.

    Conveying his condolences to the family, the defence minister said Amar Singh, who was very energetic and humorous, had friends in all political parties.
