The India-Pakistan standoff has left a bride-to-be dejected as her best friend’s visa application to New Delhi has been “rejected”, prompting her to knock on external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj’s doors.
Purvi Thacker, a journalist, vented her ire on social media and tagged Swaraj’s official Twitter handle on Tuesday, hoping for a response.
However, Swaraj, who is popular for her prompt interventions in such cases, is yet to respond.
“Counting on @SushmaSwaraj to untangle the red tape. Some1 who has visited India twice already can’t be a risk. All the best for your wedding!” senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor tweeted.
“For all those who know mine and Sarah Munir’s friendship, you will understand how heartbroken we are that her visa application to India for my wedding in December was denied. That my best friend cannot be there for what will be my biggest day is something that I cannot come to terms with. Forget the hustling, the paperwork, the months of coordination and prayers - we didn’t know that it would end with a rejection,” Thacker’s Facebook post read.
