Former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday informed that she has moved out of her official residence in Delhi.
In a tweet, Swaraj wrote, "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."
This tweet invited a lot of love and respect from the Twitterati. One user wrote: "This is the beauty of working sincerely. When others hold on to their alloted bungalows even after not being in office, Here is a Minister who did Her job superbly well. Will miss you Ma'am." [sic], while the other dropped a comment saying: "Mam, We will miss you in the parliament and will miss your speeches. You are one of the best leader in Indian politics, who represented Narishakti and inspired many women to join politics and serve the nation. We are proud of you and wish you good life and long life."

Earlier on June 10, Swaraj had denied reports suggesting that she was appointed as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh after Union Minister Harsh Vardhan tweeted congratulating her for it.
"The news about my appointment as Governor of Andhra Pradesh is not true," Swaraj had tweeted.
Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Harsh Vardhan, later deleted his tweet.
Swaraj had opted out of the Lok Sabha elections citing health reasons. She was appointed the External Affairs Minister in the first term of Modi government in 2014. The portfolio is now held by former foreign secretary S.Jaishankar.
During her tenure, the BJP leader was extremely active and popular on Twitter for reaching out to the Indian diaspora in distress. She was also loved by users for her witty and humorous replies.
The 66-year-old leader leaves a legacy of an easily-accessible external affairs minister who helped Indian diaspora in distress with her quick response on Twitter to requests for help. She served her fourth term in the House and has long been one of BJP's most powerful woman representative.
