Sushma Swaraj, who impressed everyone with her brilliant speech style, said at the inauguration program of Doordarshan Kendra in Dehradun that Uttaranchal is my new home. Atal ji has just made it. He also laid the foundation stone of AIIMS in Rishikesh with his own hands. On Tuesday, the news of his death shocked the people of Uttarakhand. Sushma Swaraj has a deep connection with Uttarakhand. After the formation of a separate state, she represented Uttarakhand as a Rajya Sabha member (MP) in the Upper House of Parliament.
This is the reason that when the first assembly elections were held in Uttarakhand, she reached all the major places of the state for campaigning. One reason for this was that she was a member of the Rajya Sabha from Uttarakhand then. Sushma Swaraj reached the Rajya Sabha in the year 2000 by electing MP from Uttar Pradesh. Meanwhile, Uttarakhand became a separate state on 9 November 2000. Sushma Swaraj’s Rajya Sabha seat was allotted for Uttarakhand. He then represented Uttarakhand in the Rajya Sabha till 2006.
