Sushma Swaraj, the External Affairs minister of India, is known for the fastidious assistance she provides to people who reach out to her on Twitter. Undoubtedly, she is one of the most accessible and reliable ministers in the BJP government. From resolving people’s visa problems to even helping people reach their destination safely, Swaraj has time and again, asserted through her mediation that she is just a tweet away. While the rest of the world celebrates Valentine’s Day, the 64-year-old minister celebrates her birthday today (February 14). Although the micro-blogging site has begun to buzz with wishes already, it was this ‘thank you’ tweet that seems to have caught her attention first.

But Swaraj’s timely intervention after Zankhana Ruparelia tweeted an SOS to her, led to his rescue as well. And now, an year later, Zankhana tweeted to her again, thanking her.

Of course, Swaraj replied.

On her birthday, here is remembering all the other times the minister has provided quick assistance to the needy.
