Sushma Swaraj promises help to Punjab residents stuck in Armenia

  External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj said on Thursday the Indian ambassador to Armenia has contacted the four people from Punjab, who sought help saying they were stranded there, after reading a Hindustan Times’ report on the issue.

Jatinder Singh of Amritsar district, Shamsher Singh of Bholath, his wife Pinki, and another unidentified person had shared a video on social media requesting AAP leader Bhagwant Mann to help bring them back from Armenia. They claimed they had not eaten for five days and that their landlord has asked them to leave his house.

“I have seen the news report in Daily Hindustan dated 7th February reg four Indians from Punjab who are stranded in Armenia. Indian Ambassador in Armenia has reached them and is providing all help and assistance. @IndiainArmenia,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

“I have also spoken to @capt_amarinder, Chief Minister, Punjab to apprehend the concerned travel agents. He has promised immediate action in the matter,” she said.
