Sheila Dikshit, Delhi’s longest serving chief minister and a senior Congress leader, died on Saturday at the age of 81. Dikshit was admitted to the Escorts Hospital in the national capital a few days ago, her family and the party said. She suffered a cardiac arrest and breathed her last around 3.55 pm.
Her tenure saw a period of dominance in the capital by the grand old party, until her loss to current chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party’s Arvind Kejriwal in 2013. Here is a timeline of the political career of the late Delhi CM.
