PM Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh express condolences. PM Modi tweeted Spoke to Shri Manvendra Singh and expressed condolences on the unfortunate demise of Shri Jaswant Singh Ji.

Army Hospital Research and Referral, New Delhi, issues a statement on former Union minister Jaswant Singh’s death:

‘Major Jaswant Singh (retd), former cabinet minister, passed away at 6.55 am today.
‘He was admitted on June 25 and was being treated for Sepsis with Multiorgan Dysfunction Syndrome.
‘He had a cardiac arrest this morning. His COVID-19 status is negative,’ the hospital said.  — ANI

 An armyman rose to national leader who held the positions of Finance, Defence and External Affairs Minister in governments headed by the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Jaswant Singh’s career was storied and eventful, reflecting much of India’s strategic turns in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Singh, a former Army man, had dabbled in politics in his native Rajasthan in the 1960s after leaving the army, but came into the limelight in 1980, being elected to the Rajya Sabha by the newly formed BJP, which had shed its old Jan Sangh avatar. He was also a close personal friend of Vajpayee and L.K. Advani. He was entrusted with many sensitive assignments on behalf of the NDA government, including negotiating with the United States for the easing of sanctions when India tested a nuclear device at Pokhran in 1998.
