Senior BJP leader and former external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj passed away on Tuesday after suffering a massive cardiac arrest. Swaraj, who was 67, was the country’s youngest cabinet minister when she was 25 in 1977.
Swaraj had suffered a cardiac arrest at 9 pm today and was rushed to AIIMS hospital in Delhi, as her condition was critical. However, attempts to revive her failed.
If there was any one BJP stalwart leader that millennial missed during the Modi cabinet 2.0 this year, it was social media’s favourite leader Sushma Swaraj.
Swaraj’s last tweet was today at around 7 pm. Read her tweet below
प्रधान मंत्री जी – आपका हार्दिक अभिनन्दन. मैं अपने जीवन में इस दिन को देखने की प्रतीक्षा कर रही थी. @narendramodi ji – Thank you Prime Minister. Thank you very much. I was waiting to see this day in my lifetime.
