Munde would be cremated at his native place in Maharashtra on Wednesday with full state honours, said Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu.

The Cabinet also resolved to observe national mourning on Tuesday, he added. Munde, 64, an important figure in Maharashtra politics, was going to the Indira Gandhi International Airport in his Maruti Suzuki SX4 car when it was hit by a Tata Indica car at Aurobindo chowk at about 6.20 am.

An injured Munde was rushed to the AIIMS Trauma Centre where he apparently died following cardiac arrest.
