GEETA, THE HEARING AND SPEECH IMPAIRED GIRL WHO RETURNED TO INDIA FROM PAKISTAN WILL MARRY AND SUSHMA SWARAJ WILL DO ‘KANYADAAN’:

Geeta, the hearing-and speech-impaired woman who returned to India in 2015 after accidentally reaching Pakistan as a child, will get married soon and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan can do the kanyadaan, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj suggested in Bhopal.   Swaraj was instrumental in getting Geeta, now around 25, back from Pakistan.  On Wednesday, when Geeta met Swaraj at her bungalow in Bhopal, the minister said that a suitable match will be found for her. Turning to Chief Minister Chouhan, who was sitting next to her, Swaraj said, and maama (maternal uncle) will do the kanyadaan.  Chouhan loves to call himself maama to boys and girls in the state. Geetas caretakers at Indores Deaf Bilingual Academy said that Geeta has repeatedly expressed her desire to get married.  Talking through interpreters, Geeta reiterated that she does not want to ever go back to Pakistan. I am an Indian, and I belong to the nation of Mahatma Gandhi, her interpreters quoted her.  Rediff.com : 9th. July,17
