Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today condoled the death of Governor-designate for the state D N Dwivedi and said he was a constitutional expert and a simple man.

"I am deeply shocked by the sad demise of D N Dwivedi," Narendra Modi said in a statement here.

The state government had made preparations to welcome him as Governor and was looking forward to work with the constitutional expert, Modi, who had known the veteran Congressman for last 15 years, said.

Gujarat Assembly Speaker Ashok Bhatt will travel to Delhi along with Urban Development Minister Nitin Patel to attend Dwivedi's last rites.

Dwivedi, who was admitted to Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi on July 23 due to liver problems, died early this morning. He was 74.

Dwivedi was to succeed Nawal Kishore Sharma, whose five-year-term got over on July 24.
