NEW DELHI: Bombarded with requests to airlift patients from different countries, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today expressed her inability to accede to such demands.

"I receive many requests for Air ambulance from Indian abroad," Swaraj tweeted while tagging a twitterati who wanted Rs 23 lakh for air ambulance.

"I wish I had enough funds to airlift all Indian patients from various countries of the world," she said.

Swaraj also retweeted some of the requests she has received over the past few months.

Her comments also come in the backdrop of criticism by a twitterati after she tweeted on Monday about a crash of an air ambulance near Bangkok and the death of its pilot.
