LOK SABHA SPEAKER CONDOLES SAD DEMISE OF SMT. SUSHMA SWARAJ

New Delhi, 07 August 2019: Lok Sabha Speaker Shri Om Birla has condoled the sad demise of former Union Minister and senior politician Smt. Sushma Swaraj. In his message, Shri Birla said: I am saddened to learn about the untimely demise of Smt. Sushma Swaraj. Sushmaji, after becoming the youngest member in the Haryana Vidhan Sabha, gained prominence in Indian politics; she became a Minister in the Haryana Government and later Member of Parliament and Union Minister in the key Ministries of the Central Government. She also held the post of the Leader of Opposition in the 15th Lok Sabha, where she earned laurels across political lines. She was an able administrator and a sensitive politician who was known for her matchless oratory and a calm and dignified personality. In her political career, she idolized grit, dignity and dedication. Throughout her political career, she remained committed towards the masses. As an astute politician and a skillful diplomat, she served the nation with distinction. I convey my heartfelt condolences to the members of her bereaved family. Om Shanti. Earlier in the day, Shri Birla visited the residence of Smt. Swaraj to pay homage to the departed soul. Later in the day, Shri Birla paid tribute to Smt. Swaraj at Lodhi Road Crematorium.
