Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday said he especially remembers his ‘sister’ Sushma Swaraj on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan. Naidu was responding to a tweet by late Sushma Swaraj’s daughter Bansuri, in which she shared pictures of former Union minister tying rakhi to Naidu and applying the traditional tika on her forehead. The flute wrote, ‘Some bonds are so sweet and strong that they cannot be broken with time! Happy Rakshabandhan to all.’ Responding to the greeting, Naidu tweeted, “…Some bonds go beyond time…Miss my sister Sushma ji, especially today.” Sushma Swaraj passed away on 6 August 2019. Earlier in the day, the Vice President celebrated Raksha Bandhan with school children in Bengaluru. He urged the people to uphold the dignity of women and ensure a safe environment for them at all times.
