In an eerie coincidence, departed\u00a0Congress leader Gurudas Kamat was cremated at the same\u00a0facility in Mumbai which he had inaugurated on this day nine\u00a0years ago.\u00a0On August 23, 2009 Kamat inaugurated the renovated\u00a0Charai crematorium in suburban Chembur, one km away from his\u00a0residence. He was a Union Minister of State then.\u00a0The Congress leader died of a heart attack in the\u00a0national capital yesterday. Today, his mortal remains were\u00a0consigned to flames with full state honours at the same\u00a0crematorium. The plaque at the crematorium's entrance mentions that\u00a0he was the chief guest at the inauguration.\u00a0City-based RTI activist Anil Galgali tweeted a picture\u00a0of the plaque, pointing out the coincidence.\u00a0Then local MP Eknath Gaikwad and then state cabinet\u00a0minister Chandrakant Handore had attended the inauguration. "I remember the day when Gurudas-ji, I and my\u00a0colleague in Maharashtra government Handore-ji jointly\u00a0inaugurated the crematorium. No one ever imagined that fate\u00a0will take a tragic twist and Kamat will be cremated after nine\u00a0years in the same crematorium on the same date," Gaikwad told\u00a0PTI. "He was a man of his word. He had promised to renovate\u00a0the crematorium and followed it up with every authority. His commitment towards addressing people's problems was\u00a0unparallelled," Gaikwad added.
