In tweets this morning, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj tore into her Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz for "not showing the courtesy to acknowledge" her letter on a visa for the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian sentenced to death in Pakistan.
Ms Swaraj tweeted that she wrote a "personal letter" to Mr Aziz. "However, Mr Aziz has not shown the courtesy even to acknowledge my letter," she posted.
Ms Swaraj also rejected a charge that a Pakistani cancer patient had been denied a medical visa for her treatment in India. 25-year-old Faiza Tanveer, who has an aggressive tumour in her mouth, alleged that she had applied for a medical visa to India but her request was rejected. According to her family, the reason given was "deteriorating ties".
The Foreign Minister emphatically denied it, saying Mr Aziz had not given a recommendation letter needed for Ms Tanveer's visa.
"I have my sympathies for all Pakistan nationals seeking medical visa for their treatment in India. I am sure Mr.Sartaj Aziz also has consideration for the nationals of his country. All that we require is his recommendation for the grant of medical visa to Pakistan nationals," she tweeted.
She further said:
The Indian foreign minister assured that the same would not happen to Pak nationals applying for an Indian visa
