A Congress troll named Ali Sohrab also celebrated the death of Sushma Swaraj as he claimed that her death was a reaction to the abrogation of Article 370. Shockingly, he tagged former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the post, wishing death to him, who is also suffering serious health issues.

Interestingly, when some of the Indians expressed happiness over the death of Sushma Swaraj, in a rare incident, few Pakistanis expressed their condolence after Swaraj passed away.
Passing away of #SushmaSwaraj is not only a loss for India but also a loss for many poor people of our region seeking advance medical care in India.
She is in their prayers just like she is in ours… God bless you @SushmaSwaraj
