Rajya Sabha MP and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, who was admitted to a hospital in Singapore, passed away on Saturday afternoon at the age of 64. He was not keeping well for a long time and was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Singapore for several months now, reports Prasar Bharti.
Singh is survived by wife Pankaja and two daughters. He had suffered kidney failure in the year 2013 and had earlier undergone a kidney transplant.
Singh had last tweeted around three-hours ago, in which he had paid tribute to the revolutionary freedom fighter Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak. He had also wished people on Eid.
“Tribute to the great revolutionary freedom fighter Lokmanya #BalGangadharTilak ji on his death anniversary. His contribution will be remembered forever (sic),” his tweet read.
Earlier in March this year when rumours surfaced about the veteran politician’s death, he had tweeted immediately at that time saying ‘Tigar Zinda Hai’.
