Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Sunday, in her condolence letter to Manvendra Singh, said the demise of his father Jaswant Singh “leaves a void in our national and public life that cannot be filled”.

“I mourn the loss of a noble human being and a most dedicated and distinguished public servant,” she said.

Ms. Gandhi said Mr. Singh lived his life with the utmost honour and integrity, whether as an Army officer, a politician or a Cabinet Minister who held the most crucial portfolio of External Affairs, Defence and Finance.

“In all these, he was driven by deep patriotism, love for his country and love and care for the people he served and for the principles he believed in,” she said.
