A tribute to my friend, Arun Jaitley : PM Modi

PM Modi attends prayer meeting in remembrance of Arun Jaitley

Speech Highlights :

  • Arun Jaitley Ji remained a very close friend. He was a stalwart blessed with so much talent. He was a multi-faceted personality. I miss his presence.
  • Jaitley Ji had health ailments but if one spoke to him, he was more concerned about the nation. Serving the nation energised him.
  • If a client spoke to Jaitley Ji in private, the client would be disappointed. Because, he or she would feel Jaitley Ji was not bothered about the case. But, in Court Jaitley Ji was so brilliant, he would know all the facts of the case and ensure that the case is won.
  • Whatever work Jaitley Ji got, he added tremendous value to that. We will all remember so many memories with Arun Ji. His life inspires us to work harder for the nation.
