Swaraj’s humane approach

Sushma Swarj
Sushma Swaraj is turning the Ministry of External Affairs people-centric. While under her stewardship the Ministry has dropped its elitist attitude and is always at the beck and call of ordinary Indians overseas, a story is currently doing the rounds of how she made the Indian Embassy in Washington work out a visa for a US citizen of Indian origin on Dussehra and Moharram holidays. The man from Karnal had to attend his father’s last rites and there was no way he could have got the visa during the holidays. So his mother tweeted to Swaraj and things were organised in a jiffy.
