"Passing away of a great philosopher and revered seer, Swami Kesavananda Bharathi ji is an irreplaceable loss for the nation. He will always be remembered as an icon of Indian culture for his rich contribution to safeguard our tradition and ethos. My condolences with his followers," Shah tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled his demise saying that he will be remembered for his contribution towards community service and empowering the downtrodden.
