Bhuvneshwar donates Rs one lakh for Uttarakhand flood victims
New Delhi: India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has decided to help the Uttarakhand flash flood victims in his own small way by donating Rs one lakh which will be utilised for the benefit of the people affected by the tragedy.
Bhuvneshwar`s father Kiran Pal Singh on Wednesday met Meerut District Magistrate at his residence and handed over a cheque of Rs one lakh to him for the flood victims.
"I met DM (sahab) today and gave him a cheque of Rs one lakh for the Uttarakhand flood victims to donate under CM relief fund," Singh said.
"Bhuvneshwar called me up last night from England and said he could empathise with the victims. He said the whole Team India has been moved by the tragedy," Singh added.
Bhuvneshwar is the second cricketer after off-spinner Harbhajan Singh to come out and help the affected people. Harbhajan, who was stranded in Joshimath for a few days along with his family members, has donated Rs 10 lakh.
India`s rising star Shikhar Dhawan has already dedicated his Man-of-the-Series performance to the victims of Uttarakhand tragedy.
