Manohar Joshi Death

Manohar Joshi Death: A Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Manohar Joshi died at the age of 86 due to cardiac arrest in a hospital in Mumbai.

After he had a heart attack on February 21, he was taken to P.D. Hinduja to the hospital and died on Wednesday.

Veteran Shiv Sena leader Joshi had already suffered a brain hemorrhage in May last year, which hospitalized him in the same Hinduja Hospital.

According to family sources, Joshi’s final ceremonies would take place in the Dadar Shivaji Park cremation that same day with full state honours. His son Unmesh told Hindustan Times, “He was admitted to the ICU and closely monitored.” Wednesday, he had a cardiac episode. He has long suffered from age-related health issues. The lifeless remains will be brought to our Matunga abode before the last rituals are performed at the Shivaji Park cremation.”

Regarding Joshi’s admission to the intensive care unit, the hospital had previously released a statement that said, “On February 21, 2024, former Maharashtra chief minister Shri Manohar Joshi was admitted to P.D. Hinduja Hospital. He suffered a heart arrest and is in severe condition. He is currently receiving the greatest medical attention and care while in intensive care.”

Joshi Manohar’s Political Career 

Joshi was the Speaker of the Lok Sabha from 2002 to 2004 in addition to serving as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra from 1995 to 1999. In addition, he served as Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises from 1999 to 2002 and as a member of the Rajya Sabha from 2006 to 2012.

Tributes Abound

The late former Lok Sabha Speaker and Prime Minister received condolence messages from political figures. Deputy Prime Minister Devendra Fadnavis praised Joshi’s achievements in politics, society and education. Joshi’s varied political career was highlighted by Fadnavis, who noted his rise from Mumbai mayor and city commissioner to chief minister and member of parliament. He said, “He was a disciplined person whether in private or public life.”

“With the demise of a senior Shiv Sena leader, former Chief Minister Manohar Joshi, we have lost a cultural leader who fought for Marathi rights,” Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar said about Joshi’s death. His departure is a huge loss to the political, social and educational sectors of Maharashtra.” Former Union Minister and NCP founder Sharad Pawar recalled Joshi as an outspoken leader known for courage and boldness in the political corridors.


Finally, an era of Maharashtra politics ended with the death of Manohar Joshi. Experienced politician and loyal leader of the Shiv Sena, Joshi leaves a certificate for the promotion of the state. His contribution to the political history of Maharashtra as Chief Minister, Speaker of Lok Sabha and Member of Rajya Sabha was irrevocably changed. While the political community mourns the demise of a visionary leader, the people of Maharashtra will always appreciate Manohar Joshi’s unwavering commitment to public service and the betterment of the country.
