Swaraj says will help Indians even if they are stuck on Mars

Swaraj replied, "Even if you are stuck on Mars, Indian Embassy there will help you".

Sushma Swaraj's quick response prompted many Twitter users to praise her This is not the first time Swaraj has earned applause for her humour on the social networking site. Her Twitter service has brought respite to hundreds of hapless Indians placed in hard situations overseas and she continues to impress everyone with her commitment to work. Please contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan.

So how do you think she would have responded? Despite over eight million followers, the leader manages to respond to requests. An worldwide public relations and communications firm Burson-Marsteller had recently included her in the list of the 10 most followed world leaders. A user Karan Saini sought her help for food, not in India, not overseas but on Mars.

Taking to twitter to present his case, Saeed Ayub tagged Sushma Swaraj and wrote "I sold half of my assets 4 (for) my father's liver transplant from India and now no medical visa for us". He tweeted, "I am stuck on mars (sic), food sent via Mangalyaan (987 days ago), is running out, when is Mangalyaan-II being sent?"

To which, Swaraj replied that the Indian embassy will help any of its countrymen even if they are located on a different planet. While others came up with their own amusing comments targetting Modi.
