Daughter of Sushma Swaraj fulfils her last wish, presents One Rupee coin to Harish Salve for representing Kulbhushan Jadhav

Hours before her demise on 6th August, Sushma Swaraj had asked Harish Salve "to come and collect his fee of Re 1" for fighting Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case at the International Court of Justice

On Friday, daughter of late Sushma Swaraj, Basuri fulfilled her mother’s last wish by presenting senior lawyer Harish Salve with a coin of Re 1, as his fee to represent India at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

The former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, hours before her demise on 6th August, had asked senior lawyer Harish Salve “to come and collect his fee of Re 1” for fighting Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

The heartening picture of advocate Harish Salve receiving the Re 1 coin from Basuri was shared by Sushma Swaraj’s widower former Governor Swaraj Kaushal On Friday evening on Twitter.

In a tweet, Swaraj Kaushal tagged late Sushma Swaraj’s Twitter handle and informed her that their daughter has fulfilled her last wish. He tweeted, “Your daughter Bansuri has fulfilled your last wish today. She has presented Rs. 1 fee to Harish Salve in Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case, which you had left.”

The former External Affairs Minister was battling from illness for a long time. She passed away at the age of 67 in New Delhi on August 6 after she suffered from a lethal cardiac arrest. She had a kidney transplant in 2016 but had managed to work through her recovery period. In the run up to the 2019 General Elections, she had already declared that she would not be fighting the elections or undertaking any position in the cabinet should the government comes back in power.

Senior advocate Harish Salve had played an instrumental role in getting the ICJ to admit India’s arguments and directing Pakistan to review his conviction of Kulbhushan Jadhav and, until then, put his death sentence on hold. The court also asked Islamabad to allow New Delhi consular access at the earliest.
