Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today described the late former Assembly Speaker Dhirubhai Shah as a man full of life, who lived a life fulfilled.

Unveiling his portrait at a function at Gandhidham, Mr. Modi said that Dhirubhai was one of the rare political leaders who combined values, and who never cared for posts or offices of profit or projecting political heirs. His contributions to the Sindhi community in the Gandhidham-Adipur-Kandla belt in Kutch district will be remembered for long.

Mr. Modi said how Dhirubhai, even after 1,158 days illness, bore a smile of contentment while departing. His death has created a void, comparable to that by late Arvindbhai Maniar, late Vasantbhai Ganjendra Gadkar and late Makarand Desai.

The bereaved family of Dhirubhai Shah donated Rs.1.11-lakh to the Chief Minister's Kanya Kelavni Nidhi, as other industrialists and organizations of Gandhidham donated another Rs.10.20-lakh to the fund.

Prominent among those present on the occasion included Minister of State for Backward Classes Vasanbhai Ahir, Member of Parliament Poonamben Jat, Kutch District Panchayat President Trikambhai Chhanga, legislators Dr Nimaben Acharya and Jayantibhai Bhanushali, Rameshbhai Maheshwari, Dhanjibhai Senghani, Anantbhai Dave and Tarachand Chheda.
