Bengaluru: Leaders cutting across political parties in Karnataka condoled the demise of BJP stalwart and former Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who passed away on Saturday after a prolonged illness.

Yediyurappa said, Jaitely’s untimely passing away has come as a “rude shock” to him as he excelled in Indian politics in recent years as a best financial and development expert.

Jaitley’s acumen in Indian politics on financial matters came to fore when he joined Narendra Modi’s cabinet as finance minister, his apt handling of India’s finances and economy made even his adversaries in the field to look at him with awe, he said.

The Chief Minister would be traveling to Delhi on Sunday to pay his last respect to the departed.

In his condolence message, Former Prime Minister and JDS Supremo H D Deve Gowda termed Jaitley as one of the “tallest leaders” of the country.

“It is shocking to learn about the sad demise of one of the tallest leaders of our country @arunjaitley, the former Union Minister who had held the portfolios of Finance, Defence, Corporate Affairs,Commerce and Industry and Law and Justice. A great loss to our Nation. #ArunJaitley,” he tweeted.

Jaitley died on Saturday at AIIMS at around 12:07 pm. He was 66.

Former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy said Jaitley’s contribution to build our nation was “immense”.

“I had interacted with Shri. @arunjaitley on multiple occasions on issues pertaining to Karnataka. He was respected across party lines. May his soul rest in peace. May his near ones be able to bear the loss,” he tweeted.

Congress legislature party leader Siddaramaiah in a tweet said, “Sad to know that Shri. @arunjaitley is no more. May his soul rest in peace. My deepest condolences to his family members & well-wishers.”

Former External Affairs Minister and BJP leader S M Krishna in a message said, in Jaitley’s death the nation has lost a “great patriot”.
