New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Saturday said he was devastated to hear about the passing away of former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit and called her a “beloved daughter” of the party.

In a tweet, Gandhi said, “I am devastated to hear about the passing away of Sheila Dikshit Ji, a beloved daughter of the Congress Party, with whom I shared a close personal bond. My condolences to her family & the citizens of Delhi, whom she served selflessly as a three-term chief minister, in this time of great grief.”

The Congress, in its official Twitter handle, posted, “We regret to hear of the passing (away) of Smt Sheila Dikshit. Lifelong congresswoman and as three time CM of Delhi she transformed the face of Delhi. Our condolences to her family and friends. Hope they find strength in this time of grief.”

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot also condoled the demise of his party colleague Dikshit.

“Deeply sad and anguished to know about the demise of Sheila Dikshit ji. It is a great loss for Congress,” Gehlot tweeted.

“She was a mass leader and would be hugely missed,” he added.

Dikshit passed away on Saturday at a private hospital in Delhi. She was 81.
