Goa Governor condoles death of Arun Jaitley

Goa Governor condoles death of Arun Jaitley

Panaji, Aug 24 (UNI) Goa Governor Mridula Sinha on Saturday condoled the death of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Union Minister Arun Jaitley.

In a message, the Governor said, 'The entire nation is mourned after losing a very qualified, hard-working, soft-spoken and learned leader today. Arun Jaitley was not only the leader but also a very big lawyer. He used to give directions to people and the youths who used to come to meet him. He used to guide them about how to speak, how to answer the questions and used to teach different kinds of things. He had played a big role in politics for the last few years. He was loved by everyone.'

The Governor said, 'Such tall leader had played a big role in the developing new India who went away today. May God give strength to his son, daughter, wife and relatives to overcome from this great loss.'

The former union minister passed away at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. He was 66. He was admitted in the AIIMS on August 9, 2019, and was being treated by a multidisciplinary team of senior doctors.
