Lulu group's 'Yusuff bhai' pays tribute to 'Sushmaji'

Thursday, August 8, 2019

MA Yusuff Ali, Chairman of Lulu Group, has paid tribute to Indian leader Sushma Swaraj, who passed away on Tuesday night.

In a statement issued by the tycoon, he offered his condolences on the death of the former Foreign Minister of India:

'I am deeply saddened to hear the demise of Shrimati Sushma Swaraj, former Minister of External Affairs, whom I call Sushmaji. She used to call me Yusuff bhai and was always treating me like a younger brother. I have served in the Board of Trustees of India Development Foundation along with her when she was the Chairperson. I used to meet and attend her community functions and some official meetings whenever she came to the Gulf. She was taking great interest in the welfare of Non-Resident Indians and especially the Gulf NRIs. This is a huge loss to our country and I sincerely pray (to the) Almighty (to) grant peace to the noble departed soul.'

The BJP stalwart passed away on Tuesday after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Swaraj was admitted to All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) following a deterioration in her health. According to sources at AIIMS, the 67-year-old was feeling restless at 9 pm and reached the hospital at around 9:30 pm in an ambulance. A team of doctors tried to revive her for 70 to 80 minutes but failed in their attempt. Swaraj was declared dead at 10:50pm.
