India’s current External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has paid tribute to former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj with the help of a picture. It is being told that this picture is from the time when Sushma Swaraj was in the post of External Affairs Minister and S Jaishankar was on the post of Foreign Secretary. There was a time and there is a time today. S Jaishankar also had no idea at that time that he would be the next foreign minister of the country. Let us tell you that only after the death of Sushma Swaraj on 6 August 2019, she was made the next Foreign Minister of the country.
As soon as she became the foreign minister, she had read songs in praise of Sushma Swaraj.
Sushma Swaraj, who took over as the External Affairs Minister in the Modi government, passed away on 6 August 2019. He died after the decision to remove Article 370. Due to his departure from the world, the post of Foreign Minister became vacant. There was a big question among the government that who would be someone like Sushma Swaraj who would be as talented, efficient and always ready to help, who would take this legacy forward. Then S Jaishankar, who was the foreign secretary at the time of Sushma Swaraj, was noticed by the central government and his name was announced. Perhaps at that time he had no idea that he would be the next foreign minister of the country. Jaishankar had read poems in praise of Sushma Swaraj as soon as she took over as the External Affairs Minister. S Jaishankar tweeted as soon as he took office and said that my first tweet, thank you all. I feel very proud after getting this responsibility. It would be a matter of pride for me to follow in the footsteps of Sushma Swaraj.
Many BJP leaders remembered
Apart from External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, many BJP leaders have also remembered the late Sushma Swaraj today. These leaders included Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari.
