New Delhi/Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 24 (IANS) The untimely demise of former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is a huge loss, said former Defence Minister A.K.Antony.

Antony said he had a long standing relationship with Jaitley.

“I had a very good relationship with him, first when he was a Union Minister under A.B.Vajpayee (1999 to 2004) and I was the Chief Minister of Kerala (2001-04)then. It was always easy to meet him as he used to easily give us appointments,” said Antony.

“Later, when, I became the Defence Minister, Jaitley was a member of the Rajya Sabha. He later became the Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House. He was a person who used to maintain a very good relation with all, irrespective of political affiliations. He is certainly going to be missed by all those who knew him,” said Antony.
