Being one of the longest serving Chief Ministers of Delhi, India today woke up to the sad news of the demise of Sheila Dikshit. The veteran politician suffered a cardiac attack earlier in the afternoon at around 3pm and was immediately admitted to the hospital. The doctors led by Dr. Ashok Seth started off the treatment but it has been reported that approximately around 4pm, she suffered another attack. As the country is mourning the death of one of its most popular and prominent politician, Bollywood decided to take to social media to share the grief and express their condolence messages:
