Absolutely shocked by the sudden demise of my friend & a very respected colleague, Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave ji. My condolences.
Anil Madhav Dave ji will be remembered as a devoted public servant. He was tremendously passionate towards conserving the environment.
I was with Anil Madhav Dave ji till late last evening, discussing key policy issues. This demise is a personal loss.
Dave, whose interests included working for the conservation of Narmada River and being an amateur pilot, was 60 years old.
He was born in Ujjain and joined the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in his youth. He was deputed to the Bharatiya Janata Party before the Madhya Pradesh elections in 2003. He was appointed the Minister of State (MoS) independent charge of Environment, Forest and Climate Change on July 5 last year.
A prolific writer, he penned nine books in Hindi that reflected his varied interests, including conservation of the Narmada River and freedom fighter Chandrasekhar Azad. His books have been translated to Marathi, Malayalam, Gujarati and Kannada. He also wrote a book in English named Beyond Copenhagen.
Some of his other books are: Yes I Can, So Can WeCreation to CremationRafting Through a Civilization: A TravelogueShatabdi ke Paanch Kaale PanneSambhal Ke Rehna Apne Ghar Me Chhupe Hue Gaddaron SeMahanayak Chandrashekhar AzadRoti Aur Kamal ki Kahani and Samagra Gram Vikas.
Dave was nominated to the Rajya Sabha in 2009 and was currently in his second term in the Upper House of Parliament. Beyond party politics, Dave was a multifaceted personality. He expressed an opposition to big dams and an admiration for Tripura’s CPI (M) chief minister Manik Sarkar for his “simplicity”.
