New Delhi (Sputnik) — Replying to a tweet in which a person had jokingly sought Sushma Swaraj’s help as he was stuck on Mars, the minister said the Indian embassy will help Indians even if they are located on the Red Planet.
Even if you are stuck on the Mars, Indian Embassy there will help you. https://t.co/Smg1oXKZXD— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) June 8, 2017
The initial tweet, from an Indian named Karan Saini, addressed Sushma Swaraj and asked her help saying the tweeter is stuck on Mars and running out of food, in a direct reference to India’s Mars program.
“I am stuck on Mars, food sent via Mangalyaan (987 days ago) is running out, when is Mangalyaan-2 being sent?” Karan Saini tweeted.
Swaraj has more than eight million followers on twitter and gets hundreds of tweets directly from people seeking her help for passport and visa. She obliges everyone, the most recent being her assurance to the father of a child from Pakistan, who needed medical help in India, that the visa will be readily issued.
It’s due to her popularity that her name is also in the running for the next Indian President.
