Sushma Swaraj, who took diplomacy to the people, passes away



NEW DELHI: Senior BJP leader and former foreign minister Sushma Swaraj passed away after a massive cardiac arrest here late on Tuesday evening. She was 67.


The popular politician, who made the foreign ministry accessible through social media, had health complications arising from diabetes, but was not suffering from any immediate health emergency. She underwent a kidney transplant in 2016 and despite a few spells of hospitalisation, was understood to be getting better.


Sources said Swaraj was doing well till afternoon but around 9.30pm, she suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. She was rushed to AIIMS at 9.45pm. However, Swaraj couldn’t be revived. “She is no more,” AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria confirmed to TOI at 11pm.

消息人称,直到当天下午斯瓦拉杰的状态都很好,但在晚上9点半左右,心脏突然停止跳动。晚上9点45分,她被紧急送往全印医学研究院,然而未抢救回来。全印医学研究院主任Randeep Guleria博士在晚上11点向印度时报证实:“她已经不在了。”


An acute diabetic, the BJP leader had tweeted about her kidney failure in 2016. She was admitted to AIIMS on November 7. After she made public her health condition on social media, several people offered their kidneys to her.



There was an outpouring of condolences, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeting, “India grieves the demise of a remarkable leader who devoted her life to public service ... Sushma Swaraj ji was one of her kind, who was a source of inspiration for crores of people.”


BJP president Amit Shah condoled her death and called it an "irreparable" loss. He recalled her role as leader of opposition in Lok Sabha, saying she was a "forceful voice of BJP" in the House. “A powerful orator, she left an indelible mark as a popular leader,” he added.

印度人民党主席阿米特·沙阿(Amit Shah)对她的去世表示哀悼,称这是“无法弥补的”损失。他回忆起斯瓦拉杰担任下议院反对党领袖的角色,称她是众议院“人民党强有力的声音”。“她是一位极具震撼力的演说家,作为一位受欢迎的领导人,她留下了不可磨灭的印记。”他补充到。

Swaraj’s long-term colleague and former finance minister Arun Jaitley said he was “saddened, pained and broken on demise of Sushmaji”. “She was one of the most outstanding politicians in the present era. She distinguished in all positions. She leaves behind a void which is difficult to fill,” he added.


Other BJP leaders and those from the opposition expressed shock and grief. President Ram Nath Kovind also offered his condolences.

sushma Swaraj was the greatest External Affairs Minister of India since independence.  But, she took her responsibility to the people, respondended to the distressed Indians stranded abroad. She was a successful lawyer, a great politician, humane, smart, thinking on her feet. In an age of co ption, she maintained her sterling character. She was well known for her smart and apt responses in the United Nations. Her illness deprived India of her sterling personality and service. Her death is truly a loss, not a euphemism as in the case of other politicians.

One of the most admired, sisterly, non controversial, commoners political leader the country has ever seen since independence.. loved equally even by the party opposition ranks.. never faltered in her commitment, point of views on various issues, language, aptitude to learn different languages (especially Kannada) for easy communication,.adept in handling various portfolios.. greed for power was unheard of.. very sad about her demise and unbelievable.. the greatest tribute all the fellow politicians can pay could if they (irrespective of party lines) try to imbibe atleast one-tenth of her qualities of dignity, social behaviour, language, oratory.. R.I.P..
