Ivanka Trump: Sushma Swaraj was a champion for women in India

The above statement was made by none other than the US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka. Learning about the sudden demise of politician Sushma Swaraj, Ivanka shared couple of pictures of her and added that India has lost a dedicated leader.

"With the passing of former Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, India has lost a warm and dedicated leader and public servant. Sushma Swaraj was a champion for women in India and across the globe, and it was an honour to know her," tweeted Ivanka Trump.

The 67 year old, Sushma Swaraj breathed her last due to severe cardiac arrest. She was shifted to AIIMS, but in vain. She was cremated with full state hours on Wednesday in the national capital. On Thursday, Sushma's daughter Bansuri and husband Swaraj Kaushal have immersed her Sushma's ashes in Ganga river in Hapur.
