NEW DELHI- External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has responded to Congress allegations that she just takes care of her Twitter handle by saying it is her tweets which have connected once elitist Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to common people.

Addressing a press conference on the achievements of the ministry in last four years, she said: “Ministry of External Affairs during Congress rule was an elitist ministry, it had nothing to do with the common people. My Twitter is doing the job of connecting MEA with commoners.”

She also said it is her priority to solve the problems of common people. 

“We have added the people’s policy in the foreign policy. The insensitive people may laugh at it, but ask the entire nation and those Indians stuck in foreign land. They (Congress) will understand when one of their own gets stuck one day,” Swaraj added.

In the hour and a half long press conference, she also talked about the Dokalm stand-off with China and India's relation with Russia.
