Delhi, 9 Jan: Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj pulled up a Pune-based man on Sunday who requested his wife’s transfer from Jhansi railways to his hometown on social networking site twitter.

Swaraj said that the couple who have been working under her ministry, would have been fired for making such a request on a social networking platform.

“If you or your wife were from my Ministry and such a request for transfer was made on twitter, I would have sent a suspension order by now,” tweeted Swaraj.

The man’s request comes after a request by a US man seeking Swaraj’s help with his wife’s passport issues.

The US citizen had on Sunday posted a tweet saying,”@SushmaSwaraj @governorswaraj hello madam please help my wife get passport cleared. I am forced to live without her in US Passport issues.” Swaraj responded saying, “Ohh ! This banwas should end soon.”

Thinking that his problem can also be taken on the social site, the Pune man then tweeted to Swaraj. “Can you please help us in ending our banwas in India? My wife is a Jhansi Railway employee and I work in Pune in IT. Been a year,” he tweeted.

His request was later forwarded to Union Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu on Twitter by Swaraj.

But the Railways minister expressed that he is unable to help the man with the request because it is not under his jurisdiction.
“Thanks @SushmaSwaraj ji for bringing it to my notice. As per policy laid by me, I don’t look into transfers. Railway Board empowered for same,” Prabhu said on Twitter.

Swaraj remains active for solving problems which are raised on twitter and in reaching out to Indians in distress abroad.

Swaraj on Sunday asked people in distress abroad to send a tweet to the Indian Mission concerned and tag her so that she can “personally” monitor the grievance redressal.

Swaraj tweeted, “Please tweet your problem to the concerned Indian Embassy/authority and endorse the same to @sushmaswaraj. This will save time in emergency.

Gandhi tweeted “Delhi CM, sitting in Dharna at LG office. BJP sitting in Dharna at CM residence. Delhi bureaucrats addressing press conferences. PM turns a blind eye to the anarchy; rather nudges chaos and disorder”.
