On Diwali, India announces more medical visas for Pakistani patients

On Diwali, India announces more medical visas for Pakistani patients”

The Indian minister also tweeted in response of a request submitted by a Pakistan for his mother's treatment and said that medical visa has been approved for her liver surgery in India.

Several critically ill patients and their relatives keep contacting Sushma Swaraj through twitter for getting medical visas for treatment. 'On the auspicious occasion of Deepawali, India will grant medical visas in all deserving cases pending today, ' External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

India has announced granting of 19 medical visas to Pakistanis this month so far.

Although the tensions between India and Pakistan have seen no signs of reducing, Swaraj has taken a more sympathetic approach in granting medical visas to Pakistani nationals seeking treatment in India.

As long as the Pakistani applicants have the requisite documentation needed from their country - a letter from their foreign affairs chief - Swaraj unhesitatingly grants them visas to come to India for medical purposes, it said. After being approached on Twitter, Swaraj asked the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to issue visas to the patients and their attendants.

Minutes later, Amna Shamim tweeted urging Swaraj to grant her visa so that she could meet her ailing father in New Delhi.

This is what Kashif had tweeted to the minister, Sushma Swaraj immediately responded positively to his request and assured him that he would get the visa.

Swaraj has also said another Pakistani child requiring bone marrow transplant was being given visa for treatment in India.
