New Delhi: Congress senior leader and three-time Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit passed away in Delhi this afternoon around 3:30 PM. Dikshit’s family confirmed the news. She was 81.
Dikshit who holds the record of being Delhi’s longest-serving chief minister was at the helm of affairs between 1998 and 2003. She was succeeded by Aam Aadmi Party’s Arvind Kejriwal.
I’m devastated to hear about the passing away of Shiela Dikshit Ji, a beloved daughter of the Congress Party, with whom I shared a close personal bond.
My condolences to her family & the citizens of Delhi, whom she served selflessly as a 3 term CM, in this time of great grief.
