Tewani told NDTV, “The minister has been quite responsive to tweets by people in trouble and they have received aid from her. Seeing her willingness to resolve the troubles of those in need, we have knocked on her twitter account.”
The family was worried that the mounted tensions between India and Pakistan could deprive Mr Tewani of a happy ending to his love story, which was designed at least in part by his father.
Speaking to NDTV, the patriarch explained, “It was my long-cherished dream to have a Pakistani bride for my son since my visit to Pakistan in 2001, considering the resemblance in culture and traditions between the two countries.”
