PM Narendra Modi condoled demise of Shri Arun Jaitley. The PM spoke to his wife, Smt. Sangeetha and son, Rohan and expressed his condolences.

The Prime Minister said that Arun Jaitley Ji was a political giant, towering intellectual and legal luminary. "He was an articulate leader who made a lasting contribution to India. His passing away is very saddening", the PM adeed.

The PM further said, "Full of life, blessed with wit, a great sense of humour and charisma, Arun Jaitley Ji was admired by people across all sections of society. He was multi-faceted, having impeccable knowledge about India’s Constitution, history, public policy, governance and administration."

Remembering Shri Jaitley, PM Modi said that during his long political career, Arun Jaitley Ji held multiple ministerial responsibilities, which enabled him to contribute towards India’s economic growth, strengthening our defence capabilities, creating people friendly laws and enhancing trade with other nations.

He said that BJP and Arun Jaitley Ji had an unbreakable bond. "As a fiery student leader, he was at forefront of protecting our democracy during the Emergency. He became a much liked face of our Party, who could articulate the Party programmes and ideology to a wide spectrum of society", the PM said.

PM Modi added that with the demise of Arun Jaitley Ji, he had lost a valued friend, whom he had the honour of knowing for decades. "His insight on issues and nuanced understanding of matters had very few parallels. He lived well, leaving us all with innumerable happy memories. We will miss him", said PM Modi.
