What will Sushma Swaraj do now? The dynamic foreign affairs minister, who has been a seven-time MP, has not opted to contest this time. She had indicated that she would not be contesting this time due to health reasons. Even during the heat of the election campaign, Sushma Swaraj was not seen anywhere. She has just addressed two closed-door meetings in an air-conditioned room and spoke at one press briefing.

The latest news from her is that she has just applied for an 'ex-MP' card. This card will give her unhindered access to Parliament, its vast library and other facilities. It will also give her a free pass to travel across India. This means, she has settled for a retired life. She might spend her time in Delhi and would keep studying the latest developments as they happen.

There was a talk that she might be made the Governor of Maharashtra once the incumbent Chennamaneni Vidyasagar Rao's stint ends. Maharashtra is very important for the BJP and having someone like Sushma Swaraj would help the party in ways more than one. Sushma Swaraj began her political career in 1978, when she won as an MLA from Ambala. She became the youth affairs and sports minister and was the youngest minister of her times. Later, she had contested and won as an MP for seven times.
