EAM Swaraj recently went through kidney transplant surgery at AIIMS after she was diagnosed with kidney failure.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier wished his Pakistan counterpart on his birthday on December 25.
The PM wrote on his official Twitter account: “Birthday wishes to Pakistan PM Mr Nawaz Sharif. I pray for his long and healthy life.”
His step was criticised by BJP ally Shiv Sena.
Taking a dig at it, Party invoked Chhatrapati Shivaji, saying the warrior king never extended such greetings to “the enemies of the nation.”
The Shiv Sena’s comment at Narendra Modi came within days of his laying the foundation for a grand memorial to Shivaji in Mumbai.
