New Delhi: Former Congress leader and chief minister of UP and Uttarakhand ND Tiwari passed away at the Max Hospital in Saket on Thursday. He was 93.

“Tiwari-ji’s contribution to Uttarakhand can never be forgotten. He played a key role in giving pace to the financial and industrial development of the newly formed Uttarakhand, and helped the state to stand up on its feet,” Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat tweeted.

He was ailing for a long time.

The politician was admitted to Max Hospital in Saket on September 20 last year after suffering a brain stroke.
ND Tiwari was one of the most prominent leaders of congress holding many important portfolios throughout his career. He remains the only Chief Minister of Uttarakhand to have completed his five-year-tenure in office.

ND Tiwari was a freedom fighter before joining the Congress and became the Minister of External Affairs in the Rajiv Gandhi cabinet. He remains the only politician to be elected Chief Minister in two Indian states. He served as the CM of UP three times.

He is survived by his wife Ujjwala Sharma and son Rohit Shekhar.
