'Stuck On Mars,' He Tweeted Sushma Swaraj. Her Witty Reply Is Viral

- Rishita Mishra (@rishitamishr) June 8, 2017Some even recommended a Bharat Ratna for her!

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj has always been known for her promptness on the social media. She posted this tweet: "Navtej - Pls send me a report on this". This is how her "fans" respondedAnd Mam Sushma Ji will continue to bedazzle us all with her wit, passion & energy to serve Indians wherever they are. Still this has not stopped the minister from indulging in a bit of humour and taking the services of the Ministry of External Affairs into actual space - the astronomical kind!

Some time back, a man named Karan Saini tweeted his SOS to Swaraj saying he was stuck in Mars and needed food. However, this time, she paid in the same coin to a tongue-in-cheek tweet from a user who had tagged her. He tweeted, "I am stuck on mars (sic), food sent via Mangalyaan (987 days ago), is running out, when is Mangalyaan-II being sent?"




Sushma Swaraj was at her wittiest best on Twitter on Thursday, when responding to a tweet in which a man said he was stuck on Planet Mars, she said the Indian embassy will help any of its countrymen even if they are located on a different planet.

On 2 June, Ken Sid, a Pakistani national, reached out to Swaraj through the social media platform for a medical visa for his son, who has a heart complication which can not be treated in Pakistan. "We will give the medical visa", she said.
