Veteran Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Lok Sabha MP Mohammad Taslimuddin passed away at a hospital in Chennai on Sunday. The 74-year-old politician was admitted to a hospital after he suddenly developed breathing problem last month.
Taslimuddin, who was a Lok Sabha member from Araria in Bihar, had gone to Chennai in connection with a Lok Sabha committee meeting.
"Suddenly, he developed a breathing problem following which he was admitted to the ICU of a private hospital in Chennai," his son Sarfaraz Alam had said.
Taslimuddin was a seven-time MLA and five-time MP.
Lalu expressed his condolences on MP's "untimely death". He said the death has caused an "irreparable loss" to the RJD family.
