Hearing only harsh words these days: Sushma Swaraj

NEW DELHI: After an Indian vented her anger on social media over being stranded at Bali airport in Indonesia, Sushma Swaraj said that she is listening to “only harsh language” these days. The External Affairs Minister’s remarks came against the backdrop of being viciously trolled on social media for days over the controversy surrounding the issuance of passport to an interfaith couple in Lucknow.

The Indian passenger was stranded at Bali airport after she left her passport on board the plane and was stopped at the immigration by Indonesian officials.

She tweeted that “Had to delete the original tweet cuz my friend started getting irrelevant calls. Please tell me what actions have been taken for which the whole issue has been delayed for more than 24 hours? Only beating around the bush for nothing. I’m stranded here.”

For which Ms Sushma replied “Beta – I understand your anger. We are making all out efforts. Our Consul General and Ambassador had taken up this matter. Now we have spoken to the Foreign Minister of Indonesia. Even now our Deputy Chief of Mission is in the Foreign Ministry to resolve this.”
