Gandhinagar/IBNS: Former Gujarat Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel, who had tested positive for Novel Coronavirus, passed away on Thursday, media reports said.

He was 92.

Patel was shifted to a hospital on Thursday with complaints of breathing.

Patel had remained the Gujarat CM in 1995 and from 1998 to 2001.

After serving the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for 32 years, Patel had left the outfit in 2012.

He then floated his own party, Gujarat Parivartan Party.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had succeeded Patel as the Gujarat CM, tweeted, "Keshubhai mentored and groomed many younger Karyakartas including me. Everyone loved his affable nature. His demise is an irreparable loss. We are all grieving today. My thoughts are with his family and well-wishers. Spoke to his son Bharat and expressed condolences. Om Shanti."
