Indore, Aug. 24 -- Bharatiya Janata Party veteran and erstwhile Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Saturday mourned the demise of former Finance minister Arun Jaitley.

"The country and the party have lost a towering leader. He was akin to a brother for me and I often solicited legal advice from him," she said with moist eyes during an interaction with the press here.

Mrs Mahajan prayed to the Almighty for granting peace to the departed soul.
