Sushma Swaraj assures help to ailing Indian in France

The Union Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj who is known for using Twitter extensively to aid distressed Indians abroad has assured help to an Indian national hospitalised in France with blood infection on Monday.

“Maine @Indian_Embassy in France se kaha hai ki wo hospital mein apke bete ki poori madad kare (I have asked the Indian Embassy in France to ask the hospital to extend all help to him),” Sushma Swaraj tweeted in response to a plea by Amrinder Singh’s family brought to her notice by Akali Dal leader and Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee General Secretary Manjinder S. Sirsa.

Sirsa had shared a video by family members of Amrinder Singh “who is having tough time in France owing to Health problems”. “Amarinder’s family wishes to travel to France to save their son’s life as he is battling with blood infection,” he said in a series of tweets. “The condition of Amrinder Singh is a matter of serious concern. I request to @SushmaSwaraj Ji to look into the matter sympathetically.”

Sirsa appealed for an arrangement of visas “and other necessary help at the earliest to the distressed parents”.”Requesting @Indian_Embassy for support for the ailing Amrinder who has been on work visa in France and is stranded in a hospital in France,” he had tweeted.

A few days back she has conveyed an important message to Pakistan by issuing a medical visa to an ailing man from Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. She provides visa to the 24-year-old PoK man who has been diagnosed with a tumour in the liver and wishes to travel to New Delhi for treatment.
