Mumbai/UNI: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi passed away on Friday morning following a cardiac arrest, party sources said.

86-year-old Joshi passed away at 3 a.m. at P.D. Hinduja Hospital.

His mortal remains have been kept at his house in Matunga, and the last rites will be performed at Shivaji Park crematorium.

Mourning his demise, Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted on X, "Pained by the passing away of Shri Manohar Joshi Ji. He was a veteran leader who spent years in public service and held various responsibilities at the municipal, state and national level. As Maharashtra CM, he worked tirelessly for the state’s progress. He also made noteworthy contributions as a Union Minister.

"During his tenure as the Lok Sabha Speaker, he strove to make our Parliamentary processes more vibrant and participative. Manohar Joshi Ji will also be remembered for his diligence as a legislator, having had the honour of serving in all four legislatures. Condolences to his family and supporters. Om Shanti."
