Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Tuesday condoled the death of former president A P J Abdul Kalam and said his death is an irreparable loss to the nation.
His sudden death came as a deep shock to me. Students and youths had a separate place in him. As a president he made a mark of specialty, Sarkar told reporters.
Leader of the opposition Sudip Roy Barman (Congress) and BJP state president Sudhindra Dasgupta also expressed their grief over Kalam's death.
