He used to participate fully in everyone's joy and sorrow. He was like an elder brother to me. 

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan has prayed to the Almighty to give place to the departed soul at his lotus feet and to give his family members, friends and followers the strength to bear this sorrow. CM Chouhan said that the last rites of former MLA Ramesh Sharma "Guttu Bhaiya" will be performed with state honours.
