State Congress on Saturday expressed grief over the death of former chief minister of Delhi and veteran Congress leader Sheila Dikshit.
“Deeply shocked and saddened by the demise of my senior colleague and longest serving chief minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit. She dedicated her life in the service of nation and strengthening Congress party,” the leader of opposition Digambar Kamat tweeted.
Later in the day in a statement issued, the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee said that transformation of Delhi was achieved under her 15-year tenure as CM of Delhi, adding that, the people of Delhi will always remember her valuable contribution.
“Personally, it is a big loss to me; during my tenure as National Students’ Union of India in charge, her support, and guidance during the Delhi University Students Union election are unforgettable. She has positively touched lives of millions of people. Her loyalty and commitment will be a guiding force for the younger generation of the party. GPCC condoles her death,” said Girish Chodankar, who recently resigned as president of the GPCC.
