Aayush Sharma And Wife Performs Last Rites Of Veteran Politician 'Dada Ji', Pandit Sukh Ram Sharma

Bollywood actor, Aayush Sharma's beloved grandfather and former union minister, Pandit Sukh Ram Sharma had left for the heavenly abode on May 11, 2022. Aayush confirmed the heart-wrenching news through a picture message on his social media platform. The veteran politician was rushed from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, via aeroplane, to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on May 7, 2022, after his health had started deteriorating. However, despite the doctor's best efforts and millions of prayers by his fans, friends and family, Pandit Sukh Ram had died due to a brain stroke.

For the unversed, from 1993 to 1996, Pandit Sukh Ram Sharma was holding the Communications and Information Technology ministry. It was on July 31, 1995, when he had pioneered the first mobile phone call in the country by calling the then-Chief Minister of West Bengal, Jyoti Basu. And thus, for many such groundbreaking and pioneering visions, he would always be remembered by the present and future generations.
