New Delhi: Lok Sabha member Ramchandra Paswan, younger brother of central Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, died at the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital here on Sunday due to cardiac arrest, the family said. He was 56.

The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader passed away around 10.30 a.m. He was admitted to the hospital a week ago.

A four-time MP, Ramchandra Paswan represented Bihar's Samastipur in the Lok Sabha. He is survived by his wife Sunaina Kumari, two sons and a daughter.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to condole the death of Ramchandra Paswan and said he worked tirelessly for the poor and downtrodden.

“Shri Ram Chandra Paswan Ji worked tirelessly for the poor and downtrodden. At every forum he spoke unequivocally for the rights of farmers and youngsters. His social service efforts were noteworthy. Pained by his demise. Condolences to his family and supporters. Om Shanti,” Modi tweeted.

Home Minister Amit Shah expressing his anguish over Paswan’s demise said, "He will always be remembered for his efforts to empower the poor..."

Ramchandra Paswan was a four-time MP and was first elected in 1999. He was re-elected to the Lok Sabha in 2004 and then again for the third time in 2014.

In May 2019, he was again elected to the Lok Sabha from Samastipur in Bihar for the fourth time on a LJP ticket.
