He said he got to know this after enquiring from Rita Bahuguna Joshi, the daughter of the former UP chief minister, who also had been a Congress leader until 1977.

The chief minister praised the former state chief of being down to earth while being one of the renowned politicians of his time.

The state chief also took a jibe at Congress for neglecting such a great leader.
