Time and again, Union external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has proved to be go-to person for people in trouble related to travelling in and out of the country. If you follow her on Twitter, you must have gauged by now that she has been attending to people’s problem on the micro-blogging site on a regular basis. And now that she is hospitalised and being treated for kidney failure, her followers are pouring in wishes for a speedy recovery.
kidney transplant is possible. “I am in AIIMS because of kidney failure. Presently, I am on dialysis. I am undergoing tests for a Kidney transplant. Lord Krishna will bless,” she tweeted earlier this morning.
Ever since she has tweeted, Twitterati are wishing for her speedy recovery. The admiration and respect is enough for some to even offer their kidneys. “Respected @SushmaSwaraj ma’am. My blood group is B Positive. I will be happy to donate my kidney to you, if needed. God bless,” wrote a user.
Many pointed out the fact that Swaraj has set new standards by being transparent about her health while ministers in the past have chosen to keep it discreet. “@SushmaSwaraj sets yet another benchmark. In terms of being honest about health issues. This is truly a new India as it should be,” wrote columnist Suhel Seth.
Swaraj has been diabetic for the last 20 years and was admitted to AIIMS after she complained of chest congestion. She was discharged after being treated for fever and pneumonia symptoms.
Here’s how Twitterati is wishing her.
Respected @SushmaSwaraj ma’am. My blood group is B Positive. I will be happy to donate my kidney to you, if needed. God bless.

Who can be as transparent as Sushma Swaraj? Our Gandhis run to New York & nobody knows why. Wish Sushma Ji a very long life. She’s the hope. http://t.co/rgFyclR5SD

I still think @SushmaSwaraj would be a far better PM than our drama queen. Prayers to her for a speedy recovery.
