Swaraj had promised Harish Salve Re 1 salary for representing India at ICJ in the case involving Kulbhushan Jadhav.
New Delhi: Moments before former foreign minister Sushma Swaraj passed away, she had a light-hearted conversation with senior lawyer Harish Salve, during which she asked him to “come and collect his fee of Re 1” for representing India at the International Court of Justice in Kulbhushan Jadhav case. On Friday, Sushma Swaraj’s daughter fulfilled that promise.
In a tweet, Swaraj’s husband said that their daughter Bansuri Swaraj visited Salve and presented him with Re 1 coin.
On August 6 evening, Harish Salve had a telephonic conversation with Sushma Swaraj, who, as Foreign Minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's first term, led India's diplomatic efforts to save Jadhav.
Significantly, the last photo Swaraj tweeted was with Jadhav's family on July 25.
