Expressing condolences, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that Choudhary was very popular among the people and had a keen interest in social work.

He received the respect of all sections of the society due to his personality and his death is an irreparable loss to the political and social sector, Kumar said.

He will be cremated at Mukti Dham on the bank of the Burhi Gandak river in Samastipur with state honours.
