During her tenure, India's former External Affair Minister Sushma Swaraj's proactive approach was appreciated by many, especially when she used social media - like Twitter - to help people.
Recently, she tweeted about vacating her official Delhi residence, informing people that she was no longer 'contactable on the earlier address and phone numbers.'
I have moved out of my official residence 8, Safdarjung Lane, New Delhi. Please note that I am not contactable on the earlier address and phone numbers.— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) June 29, 2019
Twitter was quick to note how she once again set an example with her actions, while also appreciating the honesty and sincerity with which she held her post:
@SushmaSwaraj Madam, you have set a good example by voluntarily vacating your official residence. You will ever be remembered as one of the most efficient and humane FMs India ever had. Wishing you good health and good luck, Sushma Ji🙏— Rajan Thomas (@rajtom) June 29, 2019
Sushma Swaraj ji vacates her official residence within a month of vacating office. Role Model for other politicians who want to stick to their official residence long after losing official position.— Rajeev Khandelwal (@Rajeevkh007) June 29, 2019

Other politicans must learn from Sushma Swaraj of not abusing benefits and resources. Nation salutes her for this noble gesture.https://t.co/d9YpHyBK0D— Jai Hind (@JaiHindKB) June 29, 2019
Great example and precedence. @SushmaSwaraj ji has given up her official Govt provided residence soon after she gave up her post, all in Govt service should follow the same example. https://t.co/lzdh9CKCNz— S. Rajiv Krishna (@RajivKrishnaS) June 29, 2019
Sushma Swaraj was easily one of the finest External Affairs Ministers. Even though she did not take part in the last Lok Sabha elections due to health issues, people could not help but admire her actions, right till the end of her tenure.
