Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday condoled the death of "trusted colleague" Vilasrao Deshmukh, who passed away after prolonged illness at a Chennai hospital.

"He was a trusted colleague and an able administrator who worked at panchayat, state and central levels with admirable dedication," he said in a statement.

Deshmukh, former Maharashtra chief minister and science and technology minister in the union government, was awaiting liver and kidney transplants. He was 67.
