Former Maharashtra minister Shankarrao Kolhe passed away on Wednesday in Nashik due to old age-related ailments, family sources said. He was 93 years old. Kolhe served as the Minister of Agriculture, Cooperation, Revenue and Transport between 1989 and 1993. He was the founder of a cooperative sugar factory and the Sanjeevani Group.
Kolhe also served on various key committees of the state government in his career. He was honored by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Vasantdada Sugar Institute in 2017 for his contribution to the cooperative sector. He is survived by his wife and three sons.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar condoled Kolhe’s death. In a tweet, Pawar said Kolhe has made a huge effort in the sugar sector by traveling around the world on the subject. His intrinsic zeal and strong will for rural development are the traits to be adopted by the newcomers in the social sector.
