Statement of Honorouble Minister Nandcoomar Bodha, GCSK Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade on the demise of Shrimati Sushma Swaraj   
 
It is with a deep sense of grief and shock that we have learnt of the demise of Shrimati Sushma Swaraj. We will remember her as a remarkable Minister of External Affairs who worked tirelessly to strengthen the bilateral relations of India with other countries yet always made time to reach out to her individual countrymen in distress and to others as necessary. Her role in  evacuating Spanish nationals during the earthquake in Nepal in 2015 earned her the prestigious Grand Cross of Order and Civil Merit from the Spanish Government, a recognition of the high regard in which she was held  beyond India's frontiers.  
 
She was a powerful orator and a role model for those who aspire to serve the nation with dedication and honour. Mauritius has lost a sincere friend, one who always stood by our side. We offer our sincere condolences to the family of Mrs Swaraj, to the Government and people of India and to all those who held her dear. We offer our deep respects to the person of high stature that Mrs Swaraj was.
 
Nandcoomar BODHA
 Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade
