New Delhi: Condoling the demise of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani’s wife, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said Kamla Advani was a ‘pillar of strength’ in veteran leader’s life.
The Prime minister took to twitter to express his grief.
“I recall my many interactions with Kamla Advani ji. My thoughts are with the Advani family in this hour of grief. May her soul rest in peace,” Modi tweeted.
“Deeply pained & saddened by Kamla Advani ji’s demise. She always inspired & motivated Karyakartas & was LK Advani ji’s pillar of strength,” he said in another tweet.
Kamla Advani passed away at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences here this evening due to a heart attack. She was 83 years old.
“Smt. Kamla Advani, wife of Sh L K Advani was brought to the Main Casualty, AIIMS at 5.10 pm in a very serious unconscious and unresponsive condition. Immediate evaluation revealed the patient to be in cardiopulmonary arrest. Immediate resuscitation measures were provided by a team of doctors.
