Governor Baby Rani Maurya, Chief Minister TS Rawat, Vidhan Sabha Speaker Premchand Agarwal, State BJP President Bansidhar Bhagat, Minister Satpal Maharaj, Congress State President Pritam Singh and a large number of leaders have expressed grief at his passing.
A number of condolence meetings were held at several places, including the BJP State Headquarters to mourn his death.
Jeena was one of the most active legislators of the state. He was among the MLAs who posed the most questions and enlivened the House with his wit and exuberance.
