Former Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj passed away at the age of 67 due to a heart attack. The country is in shock as the BJP leader had just put out a tweet a little over three hours ago.
Politics is an arena where women are scarcely found. An independent, powerful force, no matter what your political leanings, #SushmaSwaraj inspires every young girl to work for this nation. RIP ma'am. Twitter is the best place to pay you homage as you made the best use of it. 🌺 pic.twitter.com/uo84Vi5KsS— Aditi (@AditiChaudhary4) August 6, 2019
Terrible loss. I remember meeting her as a child when she visited IIT and at that time too, she was as dynamic and astute as she was during her tenure as the former EAM. Thank you for helping me write so many stories about you as a journalist. Rest in peace, Ma’am.😢#SushmaSwaraj pic.twitter.com/CtSWGUlrPm— Anjali B. (@TheWayfarerSoul) August 6, 2019

#SushmaSwaraj was a living, walking, talking, breathing embodiment of feminism, the empowered woman, a role model, everything and more a young woman today should aspire to be. This is indeed sad.— Gokul Nath (@ClanOfKine) August 6, 2019
RIP. She was by far the best and most able and respected minister in either of the last two governments. Changed the face of how a ministry could be managed. The country would miss such an abled politician. 😔#sushmaswaraj pic.twitter.com/i7FhWaUOxO— Archisman Podder (@archie_neil2708) August 6, 2019
