The good work that Gargji did would continue to be remembered for years," Modi wrote.

"Shri Mange Ram Gargji had a deep connect with Delhi and it reflected in the manner in which he selflessly served the people of the city. He played a pivotal role in strengthening the BJP in Delhi. His demise is saddening. My thoughts are with his family and supporters. Om Shanti," he added
