New Delhi: BJP patriarch LK Advani grieved the demise of BJP's most beloved leader Sushma Swaraj's death was "deeply distressing",  sharing fond memories of the politician he had mentored. LK Advani was seen in tears as he visited Sushma Swaraj's home to condole her death.

Pratibha Advani, the daughter of LK Advani was also seen breaking down as she hugged Sushma Swaraj's daughter Bansuri.

91 year old Mr Advan said in his tribute he could not recall a single year when she missed bringing his favourite chocolate cake on his birthday.

"And over the years, she became one of the most popular and prominent leaders of our party- in fact, a role model for women leaders. A brilliant orator, I was often amazed at her ability to recall incidents, events and present them with utmost clarity and eloquence," said the former deputy Prime Minister.

''Sushma ji was also a fine human being. She touched everyone with her warmth and compassionate nature. I do not recall a single year when she missed bringing my favourite chocolate cake to me on my birthday," he wrote.

He described her as an orator who often surprised him. Mr Advani shared, "I was often amazed at her ability to recall incidents, events and present them with utmost clarity and eloquence."

" To me, it is an irreparable loss and I will miss Sushma ji's presence immensely. May her soul rest in peace," he added.

Ms Swaraj, who had been unwell for some time, died last night at Delhi's AIIMS hospital.
