The Congress put out a poll yesterday on whether it was the minister's "worst failure".

Do you think the death of 39 Indians in Iraq is Sushma Swaraj's biggest failure as Foreign Minister? #IndiaSpeaks- Congress (@INCIndia) March 26, 2018
It is a Congress self-goal, said many in their comments. So far, Ms Swaraj seems to have got a vast approval rating of 76 per cent.

A week ago, the foreign minister declared in parliament that the Indian workers, missing since 2014, had been confirmed dead after DNA tests on remains found buried underneath a mound in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city.

“Doesn’t the NO votes mean that there is another failure of Sushma Swaraj as Foreign Minister which is bigger than this failure?”https://t.co/DYOdeEmauT
Till last year, Ms Swaraj had insisted that the Indians would be presumed alive until there was evidence to the contrary. The Congress, referring to six such statements by the government, accused her of misleading the house and the families of the workers. The party also decided to push a motion for breach of privilege.
