BJP's stalwart, Sushma Swaraj's last wish was fulfilled by her daughter Bansuri on Friday. The former External Minister's last wish was to give Re. 1 fee to senior advocate Harish Salve for fighting Kulbhushan Jadhav's case in International Court of Justice (ICJ), who is currently prisoned in Pakistan on spy charges.
In a message shared by Sushma Swaraj's widower and former Governor Swaraj Kaushal said, "Your daughter Bansuri has fulfilled your last wish today. She has presented Rs. 1 fee to Harish Salve in Kulbhushan Jadhav's case, which you had left."

Harish Salve had said, 10 minutes before her demise, Sushma Swaraj spoke to the advocate at 8:45 PM, and asked him to take his fees for the Kulbhushan Jadhav case. However, minutes after suffered a cardiac arrest. Sushma Swaraj was the facilitator for India to put up a strong and winning fight at the global forum of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case where India was represented by Advocate and former Solicitor General Harish Salve.
"It was all (Kulbhushan Jadhav case) her brainchild. There was not a single paper filed in the case which she didn't see herself. She used to inspect everything and gave valuable suggestions. She used to go personally to the Prime Minister to ensure everything was cleared. The whole credit for the case goes to Prime Minister Modi and Sushma ji," Harish Salve said.
Sushma Swaraj passed away on August 6, after suffering from cardiac arrest at New Delhi AIIMS hospital. She was taken to AIIMS at quarter to nine in a critical condition on Tuesday evening.
The former external affairs minister was not only known in the international platform for her magnificent work and oratory but also honoured for standing with all those who needed her. In her party, the BJP, Swaraj was known as a guiding force, and in her political career, she is recalled for her political punches. Across party lines, she is honoured not only for being an able administrator, fiery speaker, but also one who respects her opponents.
