New Delhi, Sep 1 (IANS) Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday said that former President Pranab Mukherjee’s demise has “created a void”.

“He (Mukherjee) helmed various posts and always worked as a ‘Sankat Mochan’. Whenever there was a problem in the country, government or even Congress, he worked as a redresser. A void has been created with his demise,” the former Haryana Chief Minister said in a statement.

Mukherjee, who had tested positive for Covid-19, passed away on Monday evening more than 20 days after undergoing a brain surgery and had been on a ventilator since.

He was the President of India from 2012 to 2017 and was conferred the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award, in 2019, and the Padma Vibhushan in 2008.

The Home Ministry has declared a seven-day state mourning till September 6.
