Undoubtedly, the saddest day for India.
Former External Affairs Minister and senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj passed away on Tuesday (August 6) night, following a massive cardiac arrest at AIIMS, New Delhi. The demise of the great iron lady has left the nation devastated.
With a career span of more than four decades in politics and being the youngest Cabinet minister of Haryana at the age of 25 and first woman Chief Minister of Delhi, Sushma Swaraj was an inspiration to many.
In her last tweet, a few hours before her death, she thanked PM Modi for the success over Article 370.
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.

Swaraj always made sure that she left a legacy of being a compassionate and active minister. She would respond to tweets from Indians stranded across the world. Here are some of her tweets that won millions of hearts.

India is my country. Indians are my people. The caste, state, language or religion is not relevant for me. https://t.co/z59339vjGt

If you or your wife were from my Ministry and such a request for transfer was made on twitter, I would have sent a suspension order by now. https://t.co/LImngQwFh6
