About Sushma Swaraj

Sushma Swaraj, who was a senior BJP leader, has served as the Minister of External Affairs of India in the first Narendra Modi-led NDA government from 2014 to 2019. Prior to this, Swaraj was elected as the youngest cabinet minister of Haryana. Further, she has also served as the Chief Minister of Delhi for a short period of time.
