Shri Pranab Mukherjee has condoled the passing away of Shri P. Shiv
In a condolence message to his wife, Dr. P. Lakshmibai, the President
has said, “I am sad to learn about the passing away of your husband,
Shri P. Shiv Shankar, a friend and colleague for long years.
A veteran Parliamentarian, Shri Shiv Shankar made a valuable
contribution to Indian politics in his various capacities including as
Union Cabinet Minister, Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission and as
Governor of Sikkim as well as Kerala. He was associated with a large
number of social and educational institutions. I have fond memories of
my interactions with him. In his death, the nation has lost an eminent
public figure, who shall always be remembered for his selfless service
to his people.
Please accept my heartfelt condolences and convey my deepest sympathies
to the members of your family. I pray to the Almighty to give your
family the strength and courage to bear this irreparable loss”.
