Sushma Swaraj has proved to be the one of the most popular politicians in the Modi cabinet during her tenure as the country’s External Affairs Minister. She has been lauded not just for her prompt replies to people who have reached out to her for help through Twitter, but very often for her witty repartee to random requests, like the one from the guy who wanted his defective refrigerator replaced.

But this time, it is her husband Swaraj Kaushal, a criminal lawyer and former governor of Mizoram who has left us in splits.

Twitter user ‘Name cannot be blank’ tweeted out to Swaraj, asking him a question many Indians are fond of: what is Sushma Swaraj’s salary? Kaushal has won us over with his witty reply.

Kaushal’s reply cleverly reverses the age-old adage that never ask a man’s salary and a woman’s age. But he didn’t stop just there. He added:

This is not the first time that Kaushal had the perfect comeback to bizarre questions by Twitterati. People have been so bowled over by his clever responses that some women have even expressed wish that their husbands were as witty as he was.
