On his birth anniversary today, late Gopinath Munde’s family gathered at his native Beed district, to pay tributes to the late BJP leader and watch Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis laying the foundation stone for a memorial to the former Union minister.
Munde’s eldest daughter, who is Maharashtra’s Rural Development Minister, Pankaja Munde said, “Every year, people used to celebrate his birthday as if he was from their family”.
“Gopinath Gad should be a place where people get inspired by Munde saheb. Every year, there will be a celebration at the Gad on December 12. There will be a mini-Vidhan Bhawan of sorts where people can hear his speeches,” Pankaja said.
BJP MP and Munde’s daughter Preetam said, “Had baba (father) been alive, he would have celebrated his birthday as Union minister. Even today people have not stopped loving him,” she said.
