Going to Parli in Beed (Maharashtra) to attend the funeral of Late Gopinath Munde ji and pay my last respects to the departed leader.

Thousands of mourners, including senior Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, activists and common people received the casket containing the body at the Mumbai airport where security forces accorded a guard of honour.
It was taken in a motorcade to the Munde family residence at the `Poorna` building in Worli for relatives, friends and close acquaintances to pay their last respects to the departed leader.
Senior leaders like Vinod Tawde, Kirit Somaiya, Ramdas Athawale, Raj Purohit, Munde`s daughter Pankaja Munde-Palve and others accompanied the body.
Ironically, it was the same building where Munde`s brother-in-law and former BJP strongman Pramod Mahajan was gunned down by his brother Pravin eight years ago.
