Delhi’s longest serving chief minister and senior Congress leader, 81-year-old Sheila Dikshit died on Saturday at a hospital in Delhi after suffering from a cardiac arrest.
The three-time CM saw her galvanize the Congress party, as she ruled uncontested from 1998-2013. Her tenure saw a period of dominance in the capital by the Congress party, until her loss to currently Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in 2013.
