Sushma helps Russian tourist begging for alms

Sushma helps Russian tourist begging for alms

Evangelin failed to withdraw money and was found sitting at the entrance of the Kumarakottam Sri Subramanya Swami temple with his backpack, using his cap to ask for alms, according to the police.

When the matter reached to the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, she assured the youth for the help.

Following this, the incident even came to the notice of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who tweeted, "Your country Russian Federation is our time-tested friend".

A 24-year old Russian tourist Evangelin today sought alms in a temple at Kancheepuram as he was left with no money. But he couldn't withdraw money as the PIN got locked.

Evangelin, who had arrived in India on September 24, had come to Kancheepuram on Tuesday morning from Chennai.

They then took data from the Planck satellite , which maps the cosmic microwave background (CMB)-the afterglow from the Big Bang. Two teams of researchers have now claimed to have resolved this issue.

An apparently frustated Evangelin then made a decision to seek alms at the temple entrance, police said. "My officials in Chennai will provide you all help", Swaraj said on Twitter.

When the local police came to know about this, they reached the spot and took him to the police station.

According to the report, police reached the temple and after checking his travel documents gave him money to at least reach Chennai. The police said they gave him some money and advised him to go to Chennai and contact Russian Consulate officials for help.

Well, it is not the first time that Sushma Swaraj has helped someone in need. Earlier on October 10, Swaraj came to the aid of a sick Pakistan national by giving him a medical visa for his liver transplant surgery in India.
