Prime Minister Narendra Modi today visited the family members of former Union minister Arun Jaitley at his residence in New Delhi. He paid tributes to the former finance minister who died on Saturday. PM Modi was on three-nation tour when Arun Jaitley breathed his last at the All Institute of medical Sciences (AIIMS) on 24th August.

PM Modi was received by Union Home Minister Amit Shah along with Rohan Jaitley, the former Union finance minister's son at Jaitley's residence. Other family members were also present when Modi walked in and spoke to Sangeeta Jaitley, Arun Jaitley's wife and children. The prime minister spent about 20-25 minutes at Jaitley's residence.


PM Modi had spoken with Arun Jaitley's wife and son on Saturday after he got the news of Jaitley's death. Addressing a gathering in Bahrain, the prime minister had said: "I cannot imagine that I am here in Bahrain, while my dear friend Arun Jaitley is no more. Some days ago, we lost our former external affairs minister behen Sushma (Swaraj) Ji. Today, my dear friend Arun went away."

Modi returned to India early Tuesday morning.
