CHANDIGARH: Ex-Chhattisgarh CM Ajit Jogi passed away aged 74 on Friday.
A bureaucrat-turned-politician, Jogi, was admitted to Shree Narayana Hospital on May 9 after suffering a cardiac and respiratory arrest.
Ajit Jogi had served as the first CM of Chhattisgarh from November 2000 to November 2003. He parted ways with the Congress in 2016 and subsequently formed his own outfit the Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J).
“Not just me, the entire Chhattisgarh has lost its leader and father,” his son Amit Jogi tweeted.
