New Delhi: A netizen blurted out harsh words for Sushma Swaraj on Twitter, however, the External Affairs Minister was all help to that person.
The man chided Swaraj on Monday saying that she was “not a chowkidar” and how he lost a career opportunity because he did not get his passport on time. To which Swaraj replied, “Thanks for your compliments. My office will get in touch with you today and help you get the passport.”
Swaraj also tagged a tweet by her additional private secretary in which that person was told that he applied for a normal passport on March 13 without proper address proof and he submitted the address proof on March 20.
“The PSK Andheri sent the application for police verification. The police report is awaited,” it said.
Later, the tweet by the man and his Twitter account were unavailable.
Swaraj has been having Twitter exchanges with users in the last few days over her prefixing ‘chowkidar’ to her name on Twitter account.
On Saturday, when a Twitter user suggested that it is not Swaraj, but some “PR guy” tweeting for her, she responded saying: “Rest assured – it’s me, not my ghost.”
Also, last week, when asked by a Twitter user why she, being the foreign minister and the “most sensible” BJP leader, had added the ‘chowkidar’ prefix to her name on the microblogging site, Swaraj tweeted, “Because I am doing Chowkidari of Indian interests and Indian nationals abroad.”
