Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot paid homage to Surajmal, the erstwhile ruler of Bharatpur, on his death anniversary on Sunday, saying he was a great warrior and an excellent diplomat. Gehlot also visited Maharani Shri Jaya Mahavidyalaya ground in Bharatpur, where sand art depicting the life of Surajmal was on display.

"Maharaja Surajmal, the founder of Bharatpur, was a great warrior, proficient in battle as well as an excellent diplomat. For this reason, the princely state of Bharatpur was always one step ahead of the Mughals and the British and the Lohagarh fort remained invincible," the chief minister said. He said the younger generations should learn from the lives of such great men to move forward in life.
