Prayagraj (UP): Keshari Nath Tripathi, a prominent member of the BJP and a former governor of Bengal, passed away this morning at 5 AM in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh. He was 88 years old. With a fractured hand and breathing problems, the three-time speaker of the UP Legislative Assembly was brought to a nearby private hospital in December.

Along with decreasing oral intake and urine output, he also experienced general weakness, thus he was admitted to the ICU. Tripathi was discharged from the hospital after receiving treatment at the hospital for more than a week. He passed away at his residence in the early hours of Sunday.

Tripathi, who had contracted COVID-19 twice, recovered after a protracted course of treatment at the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS), Lucknow.

Keshari Nath Tripathi, who was born in Allahabad on November 10, 1934, also served briefly as the governor of Bihar, Meghalaya, and Mizoram. He was also the UP BJP President.

He served six terms in the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly. From 1977 to 1979, he served as the Janata Party’s cabinet minister for Institutional Finance and Sales Tax in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Tripathi was a senior practising lawyer at the Allahabad High Court. He has written multiple books and is both a novelist and a poet. ‘Manonukriti’ and ‘Aayu Pankh’, two anthologies, are his two most notable literary works.
