External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is often seen helping people, be it those stuck outside the country and wanting a return or those who are facing difficulties in visa/passport issuance. Such an incident took place on Sunday, November 12 when Swaraj expedited the issuance of passport to a junior woman boxer and in return asked her to win a medal for the country.

Jhalak Tomar, who recently won the bronze medal in the 54 kg weight category at the Junior Women’s National Boxing Championship, is now all set to participate in an international boxing tournament called ‘Valeria Demyanova Memorial’ in Ukraine.
The boxer from Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh surely would have lost the chance of featuring in the Ukraine competition had the minister not stepped in.
The external affairs minister has won several admirers for her use of social media in coming to the aid of citizens promptly. Her sense of humour has also been appreciated.
