In a tweet, the news agency ANI said, “Madhya Pradesh's former CM and BJP leader, Babulal Gaur passed away at Narmada Hospital in Bhopal, this morning.”

Babulal Gaur was admitted to Narmada hospital on August 7, 2019 after his blood pressure dropped and since then he was in a critical condition. The former CM was put on a ventilator after he complained of restlessness and dizziness.

MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath had visited him earlier and his office had tweeted on Wednesday, "Former Chief Minister Babulal Gaur is reported to be unwell. Enquired about his health. I wish, may god heal them soon."

In the meantime, former CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan too wished for Gaur's fast recovery.

Born on June 2, 1930, Babulal Gaur was elected in 10 assembly elections from Govindpura before retiring from electoral politics in 2018 due to old age. Krishna Gaur, his daughter-in-law, won Govindpura assembly seat in 2018 as a BJP candidate.
