Sushma Swaraj: Making a quiet statement, but no interviews please!

She has already paid a visit to five key neighbours in the nearly three months she has been in the ministry, has interacted personally or on phone with dozens of counterparts worldwide, keeps on top of important issues and rarely missed an opportunity to participate in parliamentary debates despite her tight schedule.

But, like other ministers in the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she is chary of speaking to the press.

Sushma Swaraj, who took over the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) plus the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA) in mid-May and is India's first woman foreign minister, has added her own quiet statement to her working style.
