Sonia Gandhi wrote an Open letter to Arun Jaitley's wife, Sanjeetha Jaitley on 25th August consoling her and said, "She shares her pain!"
"I am very sad to learn of the passing away of your beloved husband. Arun Jaitley was a person who attracted friends and admirers across the political spectrum and all walks of life," wrote Sonia Gandhi.
She further wrote, "Arun Jaitley fought his cruel illness with great courage till the end. His passing is all the more tragic because he was so young when he had so much more to contribute to national life."
"Words are of little consolation at this time of grief, but I wanted you, and your son and daughter to know that I share your pain. May Arun Ji find eternal peace," concluded Sonia Gandhi.
Arun Jaitley, former Finance Minister of India, died due to long illness on Saturday and BJP is mourning the loss of two crucial and strong leaders in matter of a month now.
Sushma Swaraj died earlier this month due to ill-health after Government announced cancellation of Article 370.
