PM Modi Lauds Sushma Swaraj For Helping Distressed Indians Across Globe:- Huge praises have been heaped on on External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj by none other than Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi.
Modi said Swaraj and her Ministry have set an example of effectively using social media to deliver good administration and helping Indians in distress across the globe.
During a community event in Virginia, Modi in his address to the Indian diaspora said, “Social media has become very powerful. I am also connected with it. But the External Affairs Ministry and Sushma Swaraj have set the best example of how a department can be strengthened through its use.”
He further lauded Swaraj for giving a a new face to diplomacy and effectively using social media in delivering good governance. The External Affairs Ministry is now connected with the poorest of the poor in the country, added Mr. Modi. Swaraj’s habit of promptly responding and acting on tweets by Indians in distress anywhere in the world, was also praised by Mr. Modi.
“If any Indian in distress tweets from anywhere in the world to the External Affairs Ministry, even at two in the night, within 15 minutes Sushma Swaraj replies to it, the government takes prompt action and delivers results. This is good governance,” Modi said.
India’s External Affairs Ministry has achieved new heights in human diplomacy, in the last three years. In different corners of the globe, more than 80,000 Indians were facing some trouble or the other, but the Indian government was able to bring them safely back home.
He pointed out to the incident of a young Indian woman, Uzma Ahmad who said she was forced to marry a Pakistani man at gun point.
“A daughter of India, who landed in distress in Pakistan, returned to India through efforts of Indian High Commission. Sushma Ji deserves credit for this,” Modi said.
