The love story of Sushma Swaraj in 70 seconds
We have all found ourselves ‘aww-ing’ when we saw Barack Obama and Michelle Obama being the sweet, adorable couple they are, despite the posts they held in American politics. But when we think about our own politicians, did you ever wonder if anyone of them had a cute love story of their own? It’s hard to associate ‘love stories’ to Indian politicians, somehow. But we bring you Sushma Swaraj and Swaraj Kaushal’s love story.
Sushma Swaraj’s love story with Swaraj Kaushal
Late Sushma Swaraj, the ex-cabinet minister was always quick to process requests and queries that came her way on twitter. So who was her rock, her superhero? None other than her husband. Sushma Swaraj’s love story began long, long ago when she was pursuing law at Punjab University.
The same place where her now-husband studied as well. The two of them bonded over their love for academics and debating. Sounds like any other college romance, right?
Different political views but a very strong bonding
While both of them had different political ideologies, their love was too strong to be affected by their political differences. She was a member of RSS and Swaraj was a socialist.
It was during the phase of the emergency put by Mrs Indira Gandhi during in 1975-1977 when the couple decided to get married. Within a month of the emergency, the young couple tied the knot. Together they defended George Fernandez and participated in Jay Prakash Narayan’s uprising against the controversial emergency. Sushma Swaraj became the youngest cabinet minister.
And well, the rest was history. Watch the video to know the full details of their love story.
