New Delhi:BJP stalwart and former Union minister Arun Jaitley passed away in Delhi on Saturday. The 66-year-old was associated with cricket and had served as a BCCI vice-president and DDCA president in the past.

Former India opener Virender Sehwag paid a heartfelt tribute to Jaitley, who according to the former, played a huge role in getting cricketers from Delhi an opportunity to play for India.

Sehwag tweeted, “Pained at the passing away of #ArunJaitley ji. Apart from having served greatly in public life, he played a huge role in many players from Delhi getting an opportunity to represent India. There was a time when not many players from Delhi got a chance at the highest level. But under his leadership at the DDCA, many players including me got a chance to represent India. He listened to needs of the players & was a problem solver. Personally shared a very beautiful relationship with him. My thoughts & prayers are with his family & loved ones. Om Shanti.”
