Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], September 18 (ANI): Yoga guru Baba Ramdev said that the demise of Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) MP Mahant Chandnath is a big loss to the saint community.

"Mahant Chandnath was a one of the most glorious saint in Nath sect. He was suffering from cancer from past few days and fought a lot. It's been a loss to our saint society," Ramdev told ANI.

Chandnath took his last breath on Saturday at around 11:45 p.m. at Delhi's Apollo Hospital.

Chandnath headed the Nath sect of Hinduism and was also the chancellor of the Mast Nath University.
