New Delhi, July 1 (IANS) Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Friday condoled the passing away of celebrated classical singer Veena Sahasrabuddhe.

Expressing solidarity with members of her family, students and those who admired her work. Gandhi said, “India’s most authentic exponent of the Gwalior gayaki leaves a rich legacy behind, that will be cherished forever.”

Sahasrabuddhe died on Wednesday after a prolonged illness.
