She was admitted to the Emergency ward at AIIMS and was in a very critical condition. Several Union ministers, including Nitin Gadkari, Harsh Vardhan and SS Ahluwalia, rushed to AIIMS as soon as they got the news. She was a well accepted personality by all party men and every Indian will remember her as one of the best external affairs minister India had.
