That Sushma Swaraj is one of the most efficient and much loved ministers in the country is a well-known fact. The External Affairs Minister had literally acted like a life saver for hundreds of Indian abroad ever since she took charge of her office.
In a latest incident, Sushma Swaraj has given a fitting reply to an Indian student who is studying MBBS in Manila, Philippines. Last night, Sheikh Ateeq took to Twitter and sought Sushma Swaraj's help.
Ateeq said that he had applied for a new passport at the Indian embassy in The Philippines a month ago and requested her to grant him the new passport soon as he needs to visit his home in Kashmir for a medical checkup. But his Twitter bio read as "Indian occupied Kashmir".
Promptly responding to Ateeq's request, Sushma Swaraj said, "If you are from J&K state, we will definitely help you. But your profile says you are from 'Indian occupied Kashmir'. There is no place like that." Startled by Sushma's retort, Ateeq immediately removed the "Indian occupied Kashmir" line from his bio.
Sushma later said that she is glad to see Ateeq changing his bio and further directed the Indian Embassy in The Philippines to resolve Ateeq's issue.
