Mr Raja described Jaitley as a great human being and said the contrary political views between the two never came in the way of their personal bond.
“In multi-party democracy today, we need a leader like Arun Jaitley,” Mr Raja said.
Mr Siva said Late Jaitley’s argument during the debate on impeachment motion against Justice Soumitra Sen was one of the most convincing way of argument put forward by Jaitley.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, veteran leader L K Advani, BJP chief Amit Shah, BJP working president J P Nadda were also present to pay tributes to the departed leader.
