New Delhi, July 21: Sushma Swaraj shut down a troll in style after a user made a disrespectful and insensitive tweet on the senior BJP leader. Swaraj, who is known for her presence and popularity on Twitter, once again proved why she is considered among the best users of the social media platform in the current government. Sushma Swaraj Is Taking On All The Twitter Trolls Like A Boss And We're Loving It!
The insensitive tweet in question referred to the death of former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit and the user remarked that “You (Swaraj) will also be missed badly one day just like Sheila Dixit(sic).” Sheila Dikshit Cremated at Nigambodh Ghat With Full State Honours, Nation Bids Tearful Adieu.

This is not the first time that Swaraj has come under attack by trolls on social media. The senior BJP leader and former External Affairs Minister was criticised by extremists for one of her earlier tweets.
Sushma Swaraj's husband Swaraj Kaushal had also hit back at the trolls and said, "Your words have given us unbearable pain… Please do not use such words for her." Swaraj had come under the attack of right-wing social media users after her Ministry had taken action against passport officer Vikas Mishra in Lucknow, who allegedly harassed an interfaith couple during the discharge of his duty.
