In an unusual moment in Lok Sabha, External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj earned praises from the opposition members.
During the question hour in Lok Sabha, Aam Aadmi Party’s Bhagwant Maan said that he wants to thank Sushma Swaraj. She has done an exceptionally good job to save their people abroad.
“Recently, 13 people of my constituency were made slaves in Saudi Arabia. I went to meet external affairs ministry officials who acted immediately. As a result, all these people and eight others were saved and finally returned safely.”
Another parliamentarian of AAP, Dharamveer Gandhi, also appreciated the minister and said, “I will not ask any question. I have stood up only to thank the minister. We always get her help whenever needed. She has done a lot for the people of Punjab.”
Baijayant Panda, Biju Janata Dal leader, too praised the minister of external affairs for her commendable job. He said that as a minister, her response has been outstanding.
Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, leader of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), hailed the minister for replying in Hindi even though questions were asked in English.
“I will thank Sushma ji for speaking in Hindi. Despite questions being asked in English, she has replied in Hindi, which is good. There are some members in the house who despite knowing Hindi very well, respond only in English”.
Sumitra Mahajan, Lok Sabha speaker, wondered aloud at this point of time:
“There is no question but thanks only!”
In her reply, Sushma Swaraj thanked all the members for their support and encouragement. With folded hands, the minister said, “I thank all those who thanked me”.
