Sharing old memories on Twitter, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also expressed his condolences. He wrote that Mulayam Singh Yadav was a remarkable personality. He was widely admired as a humble and grounded leader who was sensitive to people’s problems. He served people diligently and devoted his life towards popularising the ideals of Loknayak JP and Dr Lohia.

He said that Mulayam Singh Yadav distinguished himself in UP and national politics. He was a key soldier for democracy during the Emergency. As Defence Minister, he worked for a stronger India. His Parliamentary interventions were insightful and emphasised on furthering national interest.

Narendra Modi wrote that he had many interactions with Mulayam Singh Yadav when they served as Chief Ministers of their respective states. The close association continued and he always looked forward to hearing his views.

Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh wrote on Twitter that Mulayam Singh Yadav was a stalwart Lohiaite but had admirers across the political spectrum. His tenures as CM of UP were very consequential. He played a key national role on two occasions: Deve Gowda and Gujral governments as Defence Minister and in 2002 when he proposed APJ Abdul Kalam for President.
