"Gopinath Munde played a very big role in the development of BJP in Maharashtra. He undertook a mass mobilisation programme of 'Sangharsh Yatra' because of which the BJP-Shiv Sena could come to power," he said.

Gadkari also said it was Munde's dream to rid farmers of economic problems and making their lives better would be a true tribute to him.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis described him as a leader of the backward classes, who throughout his life worked for their upliftment. "Gopinath Munde was truly a leader of the backward classes. He could understand their difficulties well because he himself came up by working at the grassroot level," Fadnavis said, paying homage to the departed leader at the BJP office.

At the time of his death, 64-year-old Munde, an MP from Beed in Maharashtra, was Union Minister of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj, Drinking Water and Sanitation in the newly elected Narendra Modi-led Government.
