Mumbai: Expressing grief over the death of senior leader and former state Minister Minakshi Patil from Shetkari Kaamgar Paksha (SheKaPa), Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar said Minakshitai's passing is the end of a resistant chapter. He said Minakshitai's leadership was fearless and took to the streets for the people and raised suitable voices in the legislature. 

Minakshitai Patil's entire family was associated with SheKaPa and she was weaned on the party's ideals. She would take to the streets and hold protests and agitations to raise public concerns. Her life was devoted to the welfare of the weak, deprived, and marginalized people. Patil represented the Alibaug Constituency thrice in the Maharashtra Assembly. In 1999, she worked as a minister of state in the then Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh's cabinet. She was a prominent figure across the Raigad district due to her fierce attitude and firm grip on the administration. The Patil family is under a mountain of grief due to Minakshitai's death. 

While condoling the death, Ajit Pawar said, "I and the Nationalist Congress Party commiserate with the family and their followers in their times of great sorrow. involved in the suffering of the Patil family."
