“I had been trying hard since afternun to reach to MEA nos.My dad is in Kathmandu I m unable 2contact him plz help ppl like us (sic),” Anuradha tweeted from her handle.
Sushma immediately replied asking for her father’s details and the address from where they will be able to locate him. The MEA minister has also accepted to help find one Dr Sridhar Reddy staying in a lodge at Dingboche.
This was not the first time Sushma reached out via the social media platform to those in distress. Last month, she helped unite a Yemeni woman, who was married to an India, with her eight-month-old son.
