Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee on Monday bid final adieu and paid tribute to her father Pranab Mukherjee, saying that she feels blessed to have been born as his daughter. Mukherjee, 84, died on Monday in an army hospital in the national capital, his son Abhijit Mukherjee said.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Sharmistha who is a Congress spokesperson and chief of Delhi Mahila Congress, said Pranab Mukherjee led a full, meaningful life in service of the nation and in service of people. 

“I bow to all. Baba, taking the liberty to quote from your favourite poet to say your final goodbye to all. You have led a full, meaningful life in service of the nation, in service of our people. I feel blessed to have been born as your daughter,” she tweeted.

Mukherjee was admitted to hospital on August 10 and a health bulletin this morning said he was in a deep coma and on ventilator support.
