Gallantry award winner gets govt job after 12 yrs

The persistent efforts of a 23-year-old man to secure a government job have paid off with CM N Rangasamy himself issuing an appointment order to him.

Puducherry: Twelve years after receiving the
National gallantry award for saving three children from
drowning, the persistent efforts of a 23-year-old man to
secure a government job have paid off with Chief Minister N
Rangasamy himself issuing an appointment order to him.

S Kuppuraman had rescued three students of a government
school at nearby Sellipet in 1998 from drowning in a river
during flash floods. His courageous act won him the national
gallantry award in 2000.

However, he dropped out of school and started working in
a brick kiln at Sellipet to supplement the family income. His
school teacher Sri Ram who found out about it, urged him to
give representations to the government for a job.

After years of submitting many representations, his
efforts finally bore fruit when the Chief Minister, taken
aback by his plight, issued him an appointment order yesterday at a function at Villianoor, posting him as a multipurpose worker at the Indira Gandhi Sports complex at nearby Uppalam.

The teacher said this was a good beginning and Kuppuraman
would definitely zoom ahead in his new career.

Kuppuraman also thanked the Chief Minister.
