rime Minister Narendra Modi visited former Finance minister Arun Jaitley’s family

Delhi:27/8/19: In his first public engagement after returning from the G7 Summit in Paris, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday morning visited former Finance minister Arun Jaitley’s family at his Kailash Colony residence here.

Jaitley passed away on Saturday, when the PM was in the UAE. From the UAE, he made a stopover at Bahrain and then flew to Paris to attend the G7 Summit. PM Modi spoke to Jaitley’s family over telephone immediately after his demise and he was reportedly requested to carry on with his pre-scheduled events.

After arriving in the national capital on Monday night, Modi on Tuesday morning visited Jaitley’s residence, where he offered floral tributes at his late friend’s photograph. Dressed in a white kurta, he later sat with the bereaved family members, speechless for quite a while. The silence were interrupted by brief conversations and nodding.

BJP President Amit Shah and party General Secretary (Organisation) B.L. Santosh were also present on the occasion.

Both the PM and Jaitley shared a long-standing relationship. Long before Jaitley joined the Union Cabinet in the last NDA regime, he worked closely with Modi for his re-election as Gujarat chief minister. BJP insiders say, many of the campaign slogans for Modi as CM came from Jaitley.
