Senior BJP leader and former foreign minister Sushma Swaraj (67) passed away due to massive heart attack. She served as the Minister of External Affairs of India from 26 May 2014 to 30 May 2019; she was the second woman to hold the office, after Indira Gandhi.

As the foreign minister in the 1st Modi cabinet, her humanitarian approach to dealing with issues of international relations, made her a fan favourite. She took personal interest in resolving minor issues like issuance of visa to the needy and getting relief to Indians in distress. She built an Indian human capital abroad and the response was an outpouring of support for the Modi government from the non-resident Indian community.

Ill health forced her to step out of politics. Last November, she had announced she will not be contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
