Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Dhankar on Sunday condoled the death of eminent jurist and former union minister Ram Jethmalani.

While Banerjee recalled her meetings with Jethmalani during her visit to Delhi, Dhankar termed the jurist as a "legal legend" and said his death is a loss for the country.

"Saddened at the passing away of the esteemed lawyer and former Union Minister Ram Jethmalani Ji. We used to meet often when I visited Delhi. Condolences to his family, friends and admirers," Banerjee was quoted as saying in a statement released by the Chief Minister's Office.

Recollecting his professional and political association with Jethmalani, the Governor, who was also a noted Supreme Court lawyer and a former MP, said the country's "legal scenario particularly criminal jurisprudence would immortalise Jethmalani".
