Sushma Swaraj (14 February 1953 – 6 August 2019), the former minister of External Affairs of India passed away today at the age of 67 due to a massive cardiac arrest. She was taken to AIIMS hospital where she is declared dead. She tweets about Article 370 couple of hours back and sadly it was also her last tweet. This is really heartbreaking.
