Former Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj died today after suffering a heart attack. She was 67 years old and widely respected as the face of women in Indian politics. She was treated for cardiac arrest at New Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
India Today notes that she was well-liked by the Indian people. She served as foreign minister for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first cabinet, and she took a humanitarian approach to international relations. She was especially interested in fixing minor problems like issuing visas to those living in poverty and providing relief to Indians living in need.
Before Sushma Swaraj died, she had been suffering from health problems. She left the political scene last year due to her health problems after announcing in November that she wouldn’t contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
