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.
