Foreign Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday responded in a witty style to a detractor who said the minister, known for her prompt responses on Twitter, delegated her tweets to her staff.
“Rest assured – it’s me, not my ghost,” said the minister who has earned her reputation as one of the most tech-savvy leaders in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet.
Responding to one of Ms Swaraj’s tweets, a Twitter user said that the minister “certainly” wasn’t tweeting herself, and it was probably a “some PR guy” who was doing the job for her.
Sushma Swaraj has often won praise on Twitter for reaching out to Indians in distress abroad.
Sushma Swaraj is an Indian politician and a former Supreme Court lawyer. As a senior leader of Bharatiya Janata Party, Swaraj is serving as the Minister of External Affairs of India since 26 May 2014; she is the second woman to hold the office, after Indira Gandhi.
