Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his condolence message that Gasti was a "dedicated karyakarta." He tweeted: "Rajya Sabha MP Shri Ashok Gasti was a dedicated Karyakarta who worked hard to strengthen the Party in Karnataka. He was passionate about empowering the poor and marginalised sections of society. Anguished by his passing away. Condolences to his family and friends. Om Shanti."

Gasti, a lawyer, who rose through the ranks, was responsible for the expansion of the BJP in Raichur district.
