When a Pakistani women told Sushma Swaraj, 'wish you were our PM'

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has become one of the most loved leaders on social media

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has become one of the most loved leaders on social media, thanks to her prompt responses and willingness to reach out to those in need. Hundreds of grateful Indians are now joined by a Pakistani, whose wish may not go down well with Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

On Thursday, Swaraj came to the rescue of a distressed Pakistani woman who sought her intervention for medical treatment in India. The foreign minister directed the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to issue an Indian visa to a Pakistani national for a patient suffering from serious liver ailment.

“Dear ma’am, spoke to DHC (Deputy High Commissioner) in Islamabad, told the patient’s current condition and he said it’s all up to you. If you allow,” Asif had tweeted earlier.

The patient is suffering from a serious liver ailment and needs urgent treatment in India, she said.

SWaraj had earlier said that Pakistani nationals seeking visas for medical treatment in India must accompany their visa applications with a recommendation letter by Aziz.

Touched by Sushma’s prompt response, Ms Asif wrote on Twitter,“@SushmaSwaraj What do I call you? Superwoman? God? No words to describe your generosity! Love you ma’am. Cannot stop praising you in tears!!!,” she said.

In another tweet, she said “my heart belongs and beats for you”, adding that “Pakistan doesn’t deserve her at all”.

“Lots and Lots of Love and respect from here. Wish you were our prime minister. this country would have changed.

Hundreds of Pakistani apply for Indian visa due to less cost of medical treatment in the country. Several hospitals have reported receiving as many as 500 patients a month. But the medical visa process has slowed down after a Pakistani military court sentenced Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav to death on allegations of espionage.
