New Delhi, Aug 8 (IANS) A large number of people gathered at the Congress headquarters here to pay their last respects to former Union Minister R.K. Dhawan, who died on Monday evening in a hospital after a brief illness.

The mortal remains of the Congress leader, once a powerful aide and confidant of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, were brought to the AICC headquarters on Wednesday afternoon in a flower-bedecked vehicle.

As Personal Secretary to Indira Gandhi, Rajinder Kumar Dhawan wielded enormous clout with his presence in the PMO and the household, especially during the Emergency, by keeping a hold on who got access to the Prime Minister.
