"Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee also sent a wreath and paid his tributes."
New Delhi, June 3 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday paid tribute to Gopinath Munde, the rural development minister, who was killed following a road accident here.

Munde's body is kept at the BJP headquarters for party leaders to pay their last respects from where it will be flown to Marathwada in Maharashtra.

The last rites will be performed Wednesday.

Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee also sent a wreath and paid his tributes.

Among other party leaders who paid their tributes were L.K. Advani, Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Smriti Irani and M. Venkiah Naidu.
