As an External Affairs Minister Sushma ji proved the sky’s the limit. Helped countless Indians in distress and continued doing so even from her hospital bed. Exposed lies through her well-researched fiery speeches. ? https://t.co/yO23ScBCL7

देश के पूर्व केंद्रीय मंत्री @ सुषमा स्वराज जी के आकस्मिक निधन के बारे में जानकर मुझे काफी अफसोस हुआ।भारतीय राजनीति में मज़बूत विपक्षी और पूर्व विदेश मंत्री के तौर पर उनकी भूमिका को सदैव स्मरण किया जाएगा।उनके आत्मा को शांति मिले। # सुषमास्वाज ॐ शांति शांति शांति
