Wish I Had Enough Funds To Airlift All Indian Patients From Abroad: Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi: Bombarded with requests to airlift patients from different countries, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday expressed her inability to accede to such demands.

“I receive many requests for Air ambulance from Indian abroad,” Ms Swaraj tweeted while tagging a twitterati who wanted 23 lakh rupees for an air ambulance.

“I wish I had enough funds to airlift all Indian patients from various countries of the world,” she said.

Ms Swaraj also retweeted some of the requests she has received over the past few months.

Her comments also come in the backdrop of criticism by a twitterati after she tweeted on Monday about a crash of an air ambulance near Bangkok and the death of its pilot.

The Minister also rejected suggestion that to avail any facility one needs to be a Muslim.

One needs to be only Indian, she tweeted in response to a comment that to avail any facility one needs to be a Muslim.
