HYDERABAD: The passing away of legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar has shocked one and all. On Sunday morning, Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan tweeted, “Extremely saddened to learn about the unfortunate demise of India’s legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar.”

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao expressed his deep sorrow over Lata Mangeshkar’s demise. In a statement to the media, he said that Mangeshkar had left a permanent impression in the hearts of generations of Indians for the last eight decades in playback signing.
