Former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley passed away at the age of 66 in AIIMS following a long struggle against multiple health issues including diabetes and cancer. Arun Jaitley played a crucial role in the 2014 Modi government occupying the position of one of the most important Union ministers. He has been with the BJP in its tough times and provided his able guidance and sharps insights. His death follows that of Sushma Swaraj, both of whom have tirelessly worked for the benefit of the party. PM Modi who is on a visit to France has called Jaitley’s family and expressed his grief. Senior leaders of the party and the Opposition have said that Jaitley was a truly wonderful person whose presence will be missed.
