"Anguished by his passing away. In this hour of grief, my condolences to the family and well-wishers of Shri Tandon. Om Shanti," the prime minister said.
Meanwhile, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati condoled Tandon’s demise, saying he was a very cultured and social person. It was in August 2003, when Mayawati as the then Uttar Pradesh chief minister had tied a ‘Rakhi’ on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan to Tandon, who was then the state housing and urban development minister.
