Kids write to PM Narendra Modi seeking help for ill father, PMO assures free treatment
Our father is very ill, please help our family, they wrote to the PM.
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has once again stepped in to provide succour to a family in distress.
Two young boys from Kanpur – Sushant Mishra (13) and Tanmay Mishra (8) - wrote to the Prime Minister saying that their very poor father, who ekes out a living as a labourer, has fallen ill.
Our father suffers from a breathing problem, his treatment was being funded by friends and family but that support has dried up now, they wrote to Modi.
The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) responded by assuring free treatment to their father Manoj Mishra.
Last month, another boy from Uttar Pradesh has received a response to his plea to PM over the difficulty he faces in crossing railway tracks to reach his school.
