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.

              When Kejriwal gets chronic cough, bhakts donate cough syrup. When Sushma Swaraj gets kidney problem, bhakts donate kidney. Truly, Bhakts are a kind lot.

                      I wish Sushma Swaraj speedy recovery. Kidney transplant is a feasible proposition. Jayaprakash Narayan lived for a long time, even though he declined to get a kidney transplant, under the care of the renowned Nephrologist Dr.MK Mani, who supervised one of my kidneys being transplanted to my brother more than thirty years ago. I am in good health. Since then, cadaver kidney transplant has become very common.

                                It is unprofessional to refer to a minister as Tweeples minister because one uses Twitter.
