The father of India's 'white revolution', Dr Verghese Kurien, passed away early Sunday morning at Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital in Nadiad town due to age-related problems, Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation sources said.

He was 90 years old and is survived by wife and daughter.

Kurien, who took India from being a milk-deficient country to the world's largest milk producer, is recognised as the father of white revolution and the man who started 'operation flood', besides making the Amul dairy brand a household name.

Kurien's 90th birthday was celebrated in a big way at his residence in Anand by the GCMMF on November 26 last year.
