Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday condoled the passing of Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan describing him as the champion of the downtrodden.

Rahul Gandhi said Paswan left an indelible mark on Indian politics and always spoke for the marginalised.

Priyanka Vadra said the late leader was “her mother’s neighbour for long years”.

“We had personal ties with the Paswans, my deepest condolences to the family,” she said.

AICC media head Randeep Surjewala said Paswan played a key role in poverty alleviation as part of the UPA led by Sonia Gandhi and former PM Manmohan Singh.
