Sushma Swaraj slams Pakistan’s Sartaz Aziz for being mum on visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today took on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, for not entertaining a request for visa to the mother of former naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death for alleged espionage.

Sushma expressed dismay over lack of courtesy shown by her Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz, who has not even acknowledged her personal letter requesting for a Pakistani visa for Avantika Jadhav.

However, she assured Aziz that any Pakistani national seeking a medical visa to travel to India with his recommendation will be given the visa immediately.

Responding to a plea by a Pakistani cancer patient asking for a medical visa, Swaraj said Aziz’s recommendation is required for the same.

In a series of tweets, Swaraj said, “I have my sympathies for all Pakistan nationals seeking medical visa for their treatment in India. All that we require is his recommendation for the grant of medical visa to Pakistan nationals.”

She said a visa application was pending for Indian national Avantika Jadhav who wants to meet her son in Pakistan.

“I wrote a personal letter to Mr Sartaj Aziz for the grant of her visa to Pakistan. However, Mr Aziz has not shown the courtesy even to acknowledge my letter,” she tweeted.

Jadhav, 46, was allegedly arrested by Pakistan in the restive Balochistan province last year. He has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism.
