We have already reported that Arun Jaitley has passed away at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after a prolonged illness on Saturday. His body will be taken to Bharitya Janatha Party headquarters on Sunday morning where the leaders across the political spectrum are expected to pay their last respects. From BJP headquarters, it will be taken to the Nigambodh Ghat for the last rites. The cremation will take place at New Delhi's Nigambodh Ghat today on Sunday.
BJP's working president JP Nadda said, “The mortal remains will be taken to Bharitya Janatha Party headquarters on Sunday morning and cremation would take place in the afternoon.” Prime minister Narendra Modi, who is in the UAE on an official tour, took to his twitter and wrote “His insight on issues and nuanced understanding of matters had very few parallels. He lived well, leaving us all with innumerable happy memories. We will miss him!”
