He posted on social media that “I have been battling cancer for the last 6 months. Now I feel the time has come to tell people. I will not be able to do anything in the Lok Sabha elections. I have told everything to the PM. Always grateful and always dedicated to the country, Bihar and the party.” 

After learning about the unfortunate demise of a late politician, the running candidate of the ongoing Lok Sabha election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has penned a heartfelt note on X which reads that “He has played an invaluable role in the rise and success of BJP in Bihar. Strongly opposing the Emergency, he made a name for himself in student politics. He was known as a very hardworking and sociable MLA. He had a deep understanding of the issues related to politics. He also did a lot of commendable work as an administrator. His active role in the passage of GST will always be remembered. My condolences are with his family and supporters in this hour of grief. Om Shanti.” 

The official page of BJP Bihar has also tweeted about the passing of the former finance minister of Bihar and paid tribute on X which reads that “The BJP family is deeply saddened by the news of the demise of former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar and former Rajya Sabha MP Shri Sushil Kumar Modi.

Over the eleven years between 2005 and 2020, in two stints, he worked as the Deputy of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
