Swaraj outwits Twitter user who sought help 'from Mars'
"Even if you are stuck on the Mars, Indian Embassy there will help you," is how External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj responded today when a member of twitterati made a tongue-in-cheek comment.

Swaraj's reply came after Karan Saini tweeted, "@SushmaSwaraj, I am stuck on mars, food sent via ...Mangalyaan (987 days ago), is running out, when is ...Mangalyaan-II being sent ? @ISRO."

The external affairs minister is known for using the social media to reach out to Indians in dire situations and help them.

While Swaraj got a lot of praise for her reply, Saini was ridiculed by netizens. "When someone truly does a great job, the least you can do is 'respect' the person ! Mocking them will get you attention but not respect," tweeted a user.

Following some of the critical tweets, Saini tweeted, "my and our respect for @isro and foreign affairs team is sky- high, my tweet was purely humorous in nature #NationFirstNoCompromise."
