Sushma gifts medical visas to Pak patients on Diwali

Diwali 2017 Sushma Swaraj gifts medical visas to Pakistani patients with pending medical history

Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj announced on Thursday that India will grant medical visas to deserving cases on the auspicious occasion of Diwali including Pakistanis. The minister also responded positively to a request for a visa by Nazir Ahmed, whose eight-year-old child Mohammad Ahmed was awaiting medical visa for a year.

On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, Union Minister Sushma Swaraj gave a gift to patients seeking medical visas in India.

This special Diwali announcement from Swaraj has come just a few days after she had directed the Indian High Commission in Pakistan to issue visas for a number of patients. In another tweet yesterday, Sushma said that the medical visa has also been approved for the Pakistani woman who wants to have lever surgery in India. Some of the medical cases include a bone marrow transplant patient, a few liver transplant surgeries, a child suffering from eye cancer, and more.

Ms. Swaraj has been ordering grant of medical visas to Pakistanis desperately in need of medical treatment in India. "We will allow this". Sushma tweeted, answering Kashif that your child's treatment should not be affected due to lack of medication. I have asked Indian High Commission to issue a medical visa. Swaraj said just like the letters Aziz must write for the medical visas, she, too, wrote a "personal letter" to him for the grant of Avantika Jadhav's visa.

The move made it hard for Pakistani patients to seek treatment in India, which has affected thousands of Pakistani who suffer from liver, kidney and heart diseases.
