The father of India’s ‘White Revolution’ Dr Verghese Kurien(90) passed away at around 1.50 am on Sunday at Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital in Nadiad town due to age-related problems. He is survived by wife and daughter.

In his condolence message, Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi said, “My heartfelt tribute on sad demise of Dr. Verghese Kurien. His pioneering work gave the milk revolution, transformed India & touched us all. May his soul rest in peace.”
