MEA promises to issue visa to Pakistani bride

New Delhi: The strained relations between India and Pakistan following the recent terror attack and surgical strike affected not only the socio-economic relations of the countries but also personal relationships. A marriage between an Indian groom and a Pakistani bride was almost averted due to the growing uneasiness between the two countries.   
 
With the wedding dates approaching near, the Indian embassy in Pakistan did not grant visas to the bride's family and relatives which left both the parties tense about the marriage. 
 
After the bride's party allegedly said that they were made to run from pillar to post for visas by the Indian embassy, the groom took up his problem with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the microblogging site Twitter. 
 
Sushma Swaraj, MEA immediately took to her Twiiter handle to respond saying that she will get the visa arranged.  
Naresh Tewani from Jodhpur got engaged to Priya Bachchani of Karachi in Pakistan over two years back after their families met through a matrimony service, run by Naresh's father Kanhaiya Lal Tewani.
 
The couple is set to get hitched on November 7.
