Sushma Swaraj, the 'super mom' of India, is no more

sushama

NEW DELHI: Senior BJP leader and former foreign minister Sushma Swaraj breathed her last around 11 in the night at AIIMS on Tuesday. The BJP veteran, a kidney patient, had suffered a massive heart attack. She was 67.

Her last Twitter post was the one that thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the government’s move on Kashmir stating that she was waiting for this day in her lifetime.

Swaraj, who was for the Bharatiya Janata Party’s most prominent woman face, did not contest the recently held Lok Sabha elections in which the party won a landslide victory. Last November, she had announced she would not contest the general elections.

Swaraj was perhaps the most endearing minister the Indian government has ever had. From being tagged the 'supermom' of India by Washington Post to becoming one of the most-followed politicians on Twitter, the late external affairs minister was acceptable to young and old alike with her round-the-clock social media presence, eagerness to help, and ready wit on social media.
