Twitter frenzy on Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj’s twitter bio


Twitter on Wednesday was abuzz with all kinds of conspiracy theories after Times of India reported that the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had removed her designation from her twitter account.

Swaraj, who has a verified twitter account, removed ‘external affairs minister’ from her bio.


This prompted twitter users to start speculating the motive behind the sudden omission of her designation from her twitter account with some suggesting that it was a sign of an imminent departure.

Swaraj has been in the eye of storm following revelations that she had helped Lalit Modi, wanted by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with charges of money laundering, get travel documents from the British authorities.

Opposition have been demanding her resignation and vowed not to allow functioning of parliament proceedings until the government gave in to their demands.

Parliament’s monsoon session, which started on Tuesday,  has hardly been able to function amidst chaos created by the opposition parties.

On Wednesday, Swaraj said that she was going to announce a Congress leader’s name who had pressed her to issue a diplomatic passport to a coal tl scam tainted person.

Later, the proceedings of Rajya Sabha continued to be disrupted until the upper house was adjourned for the day.
