Minister for External Affairs at the Central Cabinet of Indian Government Sushma Swaraj is popular for being someone who always goes the extra mile to help citizens in situations of emergency, such as Indian nationals stranded in various countries. Yet again, the inspiring Minister is in the headlines for offering a medical visa to a four-month-old boy from Pakistan who is suffering from a serious heart disease. Swaraj has released this visa on humanitarian grounds.
Rohaan, a four-month-old baby from Lahore of Pakistan has a hole in his heart and will now get treated at the Jaypee Hospital in Noida, thanks to Swaraj. The boy’s parents tried everything they could to get a visa for the treatment of their child, despite the extremely critical condition of Rohaan’s health.
As a last resort, Rohaan’s father Kanwal Saadik sought Swaraj’s assistance on Twitter, requesting her to help the family with the visa. The Minister responded to the tweet with an assurance that no political rift will prevent the boy’s treatment which he will receive in the country without any hassle.
The four-month-old Rohaan now has the visa and will soon arrive in Noida via the Wagah border for his treatment. He will be first attended by the paediatric cardiologist Dr. Ashutosh Marwah and then by paediatric cardiac surgeon, Dr. Rajesh Sharma who shall facilitate the heart surgery.
