Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday paid homage to former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj stating that she emerged as a shining star during Emergency period and worked as an able administrator.

"We are saddened by the untimely death of Sushma Swaraj. It's a big loss for national politics. She had emerged as a shining star in national politics during Emergency. She worked as an able administrator under the government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Narendra Modi. The void in Indian politics left by her demise will not be filled for a very long time. I pray to God to give strength to her family," Amit Shah told media here.

 

Sushma Swaraj passed away following a cardiac arrest on Tuesday night.

Swaraj was appointed the foreign minister in the first term of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government in 2014. She opted out of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections citing health reasons.
