Agra: Olga, a Russian daughter-in-law, who has been sitting in protest against her mother-in-law at the doorstep of the family home in Agra, from where she has been kicked out, on Sunday thanked External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for taking prompt action for her case. 

Olga while thanking EAM Sushma Swaraj said, “Want to thank Sushma Swarajji for taking prompt action. Sushma ji through her tweet directed UP CM to help us, thanks to her and UP CM. FIR has been lodged, finally. My mother-in-law keeps on asking for money, says that I’m from poor family & didn’t bring anything along.”

 

 

Earlier on Sunday, EAM Sushma Swaraj urged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to help the Russian daughter-in-law.

 
The Minister tweeted and said, “Akhilesh ji – Pl help this lady. @yadavakhilesh.”
 
Russian national Olga Efimenkova, who married Vikrant Singh Chandel in 2011, has been sitting outside her in-laws house on a hunger strike, claiming that she, her husband and daughter have been barred from entering their house in Agra.
 
“I am from Russia and I got married to Vikrant Singh Chandel here in Agra in 2011. My problem is that my mother-in-law has thrown us out of the house and we have no other place to go. So now I am sitting here with my daughter at the gate of the house, as she (mother-in-law) is not letting me go inside,” Olga told the media.
