Sushma Swaraj apologize on immigration officer’s racism


New Delhi: Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj apologised to her, saying that she will take the issue up with Home Ministry. Swaraj apologized to Monika Khangembam on Twitter, saying that Immigration department doesn’t come under her Ministry, but that she will surely take it up with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Meanwhile, Kiren Rijiju also confirmed that the matter had been taken note of.

Swaraj tweeted “Monika Khangembam – I am sorry to know this. Immigration is not with me. I will speak to my senior colleague Shri @rajnathsingh ji to sensitise Immigration officials at the airport.” This came after Khangembam posted on Facebook about how she was bullied by an immigration officer at the airport and asked to ‘prove her Indian’.
Union Minister of State for Home Affairs of India Kiren Rijiju also said, “Action will be taken as and when details are given to us.”
