New Delhi: Known for her witty barbs and online presence on social media, Sushma Swaraj had a piece of advice for the media on Tuesday – not to play up her absence at the oath-taking ceremony that took place at Rashtrapati Bhavan, where 19 new ministers were inducted in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet.
