Jaipur/New Delhi/Rohtak: BJP MP from Alwar Mahant Chand Nath, who was battling an "aggressive thyroid cancer", passed away at a Delhi hospital on Sunday. Nath, head of the Baba Mastnath Math in Rohtak, was laid to rest in Samadhi at the Math premises with full state honours. He was 61. Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled his death. "Saddened by the demise of LS MP from Alwar, Mahant Chand Nath ji. He will be remembered for his rich social work. My deepest condolences," Modi said in a tweet.

Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar and his Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan counterparts Yogi Adityanath and Vasundhra Raje, were present when Nath was laid to rest in Rohtak. Thousands of Nath's followers paid tributes to the departed soul. Earlier, his body was kept at the Math to enable people to pay their last respects.
On September 13, Nath was brought to the Apollo Hospital in New Delhi in a very bad shape. "He was battling an aggressive thyroid cancer for the last two-and-a-half years. He had already undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy and was undergoing immunotherapy," senior doctors said.
"We had conducted tracheostomy. He was being fed through a tube in his stomach. Yesterday, he was doing fine during the daytime, but his condition deteriorated at night and he suffered a cardiac arrest. He died around 12:40 am," he said.
