Sushma Swaraj to choose husband for deaf & speech-impaired Geeta
As per reports, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has taken the responsibility of finding an eligible husband for Geeta.
Geeta is the speech impaired and deaf girl who made news after she came back from Pakistan after living there for a decade.
The government has posted a marriage proposal ad for Geeta on Facebook with the help of a sign-language expert.
The post invites proposals from Good smart Deaf Boy age above 25 years.
A couple, Gyanendra and Monica Purohit, who run an NGO for deaf people called Anand Service Society have been given the responsibility of going through the proposals.
They will pass the information on to Sushma Swaraj, who will make the final decision.
Geeta was 11 years old when Pakistani soldiers found her sitting at the Samjhauta Express station in Lahore.
She was adopted by a Pakistani social worker and spent over a decade in Pakistan.
The government has been trying to locate the parents of Geeta to reunite her with her long lost family. However, all attempts have failed so far.
