New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday condoled the demise of former Karnataka Chief Minister Dharam Singh and said his dedicated service towards the society would be remembered.

Singh died of a massive heart attack at a private hospital in Bengaluru this morning, doctors said.

"Saddened by the demise of former Karnataka CM Shri N. Dharam Singh. My thoughts are with his family & supporters in this sad hour," the prime minister tweeted.

"Shri N. Dharam Singh had rich experience in Karnataka & national politics. His dedicated service towards society will be remembered," Modi added.

Eighty-year-old Singh, ailing for the last few months, fainted at his home and was rushed to M S Ramaiah hospital where doctors declared him dead about 40 minutes later.

Singh headed the Congress-JD(S) coalition government from 2004 to 2006. A nine-time MLA and a former Member of Parliament, he had also headed the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee.
