Akhilesh Yadav proves yet again that humanity is above all
Akhilesh Yadav, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has turned out to be more than just a political figure. He recently displayed inordinate act of kindness when he arranged medical support for the ten-year-old Ansh.
Krishna Dutta’s son living in Gokulpura of Agra district is suffering from blood cancer. Ansh was only 8 years old when he was diagnosed with this disease. He was admitted in a Delhi hospital, after which he was transferred to Jaipur, where his treatment went on for 2.5 years.
All was lost for his parents when they realized that they couldn’t further sustain his treatment in spite of selling everything they owned. His testes still have cysts and even after 3 years, of continuous treatment, there was no improvement.
Then suddenly one day, a miracle took place.
On 26th June 2016, Ansh decided to write a letter to Prime Minister and Chief Minister of UP asking for financial assistance for further treatment.
In an interview with ANI Ansh said, “I have sought help from the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister. I have seen them on the television helping all. So, I wrote to them. Please help me Prime Minister uncle and Chief Minister uncle. I am hopeful they will help me.”
To this, Mr. Yadav was ardent enough to immediately notice the post and on 28th June 2016 ordered officials to synchronise with health centres and ensure appropriate medical help for Ansh.
Agra district magistrate Pankaj Kumar said that the CM has taken cognizance of the letter and asked the administration to provide all possible help to the family. He confirmed that the senior officials visited Ansh on 28th June 2016 and are ready to shift him to the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute, Lucknow. The CM further added that if the family so desires, Ansh can be moved to any hospital of their choice.
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in his letter to DM Agra mentioned not only the fact that he will be funding Ansh’s treatment but also wished the boy with good health and longevity.
The digital media aided Ansh’s attempt and the boy’s story found a space for itself in the publications as well.
Akhilesh Yadav has once again showed the world that humanity is above everything else.
