Condolence Message for Shri Arun Jaitley, India's former Union Finance Minister

25 August, 2019: Former Union Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Shri Arun Jaitley, passed away on August 24, 2019.

The following condolence letter was sent to Smt Sangeeta Jaitley from Prof M S Swaminathan.

It is with great sorrow that I received the news of the demise of your dear husband and my good friend.  When I was a nominated Member of Rajya Sabha, and when i came into contact with your husband closely, I started admiring his intellect and integrity.  His passing away at rather young age has left a void which is difficult to fill.

To you and your family, the loss is a personal one.  I share your sorrow and pray for the peace of the departed soul. His life and work will continue to inspire the generations yet to come.

With my respectful regards  

Yours sincerely,

M S Swaminathan
