Sushma Swaraj has, time and again, proved that she is the best External Affairs Minister till date. Her prompt replies on Twitter and instant actions have got famous and have earned her a lot of respect. She is one of those ministers who have made their government extraordinarily proud.
Recently, an elderly couple started a petition on Change.org to seek help from Sushma Swaraj. A 70 year-old woman and her 74 year-old husband are looking after their disabled daughters since the past 40 years. The younger daughter, R. Sarvani is 90% disabled while the other one R. Gayathridevi is 72% disabled.
The couple also has a son who is settled abroad. Their son is ready to take care of his sisters but the elderly couple is not fit enough to travel to their nearest Passport Seva Kendra which is 110 Km away. Their daughters can’t handle the work because of their disability.
Therefore, the elderly couple filed a petition which they requested everyone to sign to seek help from Sushma Swaraj.
Luckily, their petition got noticed by the External Affairs Minister and received a prompt reply from her on Twitter…

Soon, the RPO contacted the couple at their residence and the Police from the concerned District did the rest of the formalities. Sushma Swaraj confirmed the happy news with another tweet…
Your daughters do not have to go anywhere. The Passports will reach your house today. https://t.co/5qI4f0wwSV

After receiving help from Sushma Swaraj, this is what the couple said…
We are overjoyed that Sushma Swaraj Ji responded to our petition. We are deeply grateful to her for offering help in getting our daughters’ passports.
Sushma Swaraj with this step has again restored our faith in bureaucracy.
