President of India condoles the passing away of Shri Brijmohan Lall Munjal

The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee has condoled the passing away of Shri Brijmohan Lall Munjal.

In his condolence message to his son, Shri Sunil Kant Munjal, the President has said, “I am sad to learn about the passing away of Shri Brijmohan Lall Munjal.

An iconic figure and eminent industrialist, Shri Munjal was known for his hard-work, vision and immense contribution to the Indian two-wheeler industry. His entrepreneurial abilities resulted in Hero MotoCorp becoming a benchmark for the rest of Indian industry. For his exemplary contribution in the field of trade and industry, he was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 2005. In his death, the nation has lost a stalwart whose human touch endeared him to all.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences and convey them to the rest of your family members. I pray to the Almighty to give you and other members of your family, the strength and courage to bear this irreparable loss”.
