PM pays tributes to former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj

Prime
Minister Shri Narendra Modi paid tributes to former External Affairs
Minister Sushma Swaraj, at her residence in New Delhi today.

Expressing
condolence over her demise, Prime Minister said, “A glorious chapter in
Indian politics comes to an end. India grieves the demise of a
remarkable leader who devoted her life to public service and bettering
lives of the poor. Sushma Swaraj Ji was one of her kind, who was a
source of inspiration for crores of people.
Sushma
Ji was a prolific orator and outstanding Parliamentarian. She was
admired and revered across party lines. She was uncompromising when it
came to matters of ideology and interests of the BJP, whose growth she
immensely contributed to.
An
excellent administrator, Sushma Ji set high standards in every Ministry
she handled. She played a key role in bettering India’s ties with
various nations. As a Minister we also saw her compassionate side,
helping fellow Indians who were in distress in any part of the world.
I
can’t forget the manner in which Sushma Ji worked tirelessly as EAM in
the last 5 years. Even when her health was not good, she would do
everything possible to do justice to her work and remain up to date with
matters of her Ministry. The spirit and commitment was unparalleled.
Sushma
Ji’s demise is a personal loss. She will be remembered fondly for
everything that she’s done for India. My thoughts are with her family,
supporters and admirers in this very unfortunate hour. Om Shanti”.
