Sushma Swaraj, upon received the message, assured the aggrieved person that the matter will be resolved as she has asked the Indian High Commissioner in Malaysia to help him.

As the aggrieved person had used a broken format of English, one of the users suggested him to use Hindi or Punjabi to put forwards his complaint.

However, Sushma Swaraj replied stating that it was not a problem for her as she has learnt to follow English of all accents and grammar since she became the country’s Foreign Minister.

This is not the first that EAM Sushma Swaraj has displayed her sagacity and wit while dealing with a tough situation. In the past, a Twitter user had sought Swaraj’s intervention in a refrigerator related problem. Interestingly, Sushma Swaraj not only read the tweet but even responded to it.

Similarly, in another incident, a Twitter user Karan Saini had tweeted to Sushma Swaraj saying he was stuck on mars and the food sent via Mangalyaan is running out. He asked when Mangalyaan-II would be sent. Sushma Swaraj had replied to this tongue-in-cheek tweet with some wit, saying “Even if you are stuck on the Mars, Indian Embassy there will help you.”

Swaraj is one of Modi government’s most prominent ministers on Twitter. She is praised regularly for her being prompt and helpful when people share issues of their friends or family stuck in difficult situations in foreign countries.
