I’m shocked to hear about the demise of Sushma Swaraj Ji, an extraordinary political leader, a gifted orator & an exceptional Parliamentarian, with friendships across party lines.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) August 6, 2019
My condolences to her family in this hour of grief.
May her soul rest in peace.
Om Shanti 🙏
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.
