External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who is known to use Twitter to help thousands of Indians in need without any fuss, has won our hearts yet again. This time, the minister came forward to help junior woman boxer Jhalak Tomar so that she could participate in an international boxing tournament. Mrs Swaraj helped the Indian athlete on one condition – she wanted the sportswoman to win a medal for India.
Jhalak Tomar hails from Muzaffarnagar who recently clinched a bronze medal in the the 54 kg weight category at the Junior Women’s National Boxing Championship. She was scheduled to leave for Nadvirna, Ukraine to participate in ‘Valeria Demyanova Memorial’, an international boxing championship. However, her passport issuance was delayed. Meanwhile a Twitter user named Aditi Sharma brought this issue under Swaraj’s concerned and tweeted:

She then was selected for the junior Team India camp and trained hard at the Hemraj Rashtriya Vyayamshala in Udaipur. Now after receiving her passport, she is all set to represent India on the global platform.
