Jaitley, the BJP’s Best Communicator, Not a Hindi Fanatic

Unquestionably, the best communicator the BJP had, former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley generally spoke in English and appeared to keep Hindi fanaticism at bay, I had even thought he was a misfit in the BJP.

Yet, his association with the party ran deep and was not coincidental or one of convenience but of conviction.

Jaitley is the third senior leader the BJP has lost this year to serious ailments after Sushma Swaraj and Manohar Parikkar – all in their 60s.

He was considered a master strategist and a trusted trouble-shooter. But the party thrives solely on the charisma of Modi and the narrow ideology he represents, no loss is a setback to it.

RIP Jaitleyji!
