External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is quite active on Twitter. In several occasions, she has helped out Indians in distress abroad when they had reached out to them through social media

On Monday, she received an unusual request, from a disgruntled man who wanted the external affairs minister to fix his refrigerator problem. His complaint was that Samsung allegedly sold him a faulty refrigerator and wanted Swaraj to help. He even tagged Ram Vilas Paswan, the Union minister for consumer affairs, food and public distribution, for maximum impact.

“@irvpaswan @SushmaSwaraj Dear Ministers, @SamsungIN sold me a defective refrigerator, they r not ready to replace (sic),” @M_VenkatM tweeted.

Swaraj's reply to him has since then gone viral and generated a series of responses.

"Brother I cannot help you in matters of a Refrigerator. I am very busy with human beings in distress."
