Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has expressed shock at the death of senior BJP leader and former external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.

In a tweet, he described her as an extraordinary political leader, a gifted orator & an exceptional Parliamentarian.

 

Swaraj died of a cardiac arrest at New Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences at around 10 pm Tuesday shortly after she was admitted to the hospital.

Rahul Gandhi and Sushma Swaraj had last sparred in April in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections when she hit out at the Congress leader for his reported remarks that terrorism was not an issue and said that it was true, then he should renounce his Special Protection Group (SPG) security cover.
