He was also the vice president and treasurer of BJP and President of Shiv Shankar Social Society.

His son Jitendra said “I am very proud to be the son of such an illustrious personality. He was my guide who I used to turn to for each and everything. It is going to be impossible to fill the void in my life,” he said while his daughter Manju said that her father was a man with total passion and dedication towards the cause he believed in and fought for it until his last day. “He dedicated his life to the Jan Sangh (BJP and RSS) and social service. Someone who absolutely loved children as well,” she added.
