After twitter, Akhilesh Yadav also extends help from Facebook
Akhilesh Yadav, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has turned out to be more than just a political leader. Often we have heard of incidents where the CM has listened to the people’s plea on social media platforms and extended a helping hand. Yet again, he displayed inordinate act of kindness when he arranged medical support for a two-year-old boy Vansh; earning social and digital admiration of one and all.
Vansh, hailing from a poor family of Bareilly, was diagnosed with blood cancer almost two weeks back. His family had been going from one place to another for their child’s adequate treatment. The doctors said that the entire procedure will cost them Rs. 6 lakh and without which they will not be able to help the 2-year-old. Vansh’s parents tried everything and were only able to accumulate Rs. 1.50 lakh from their savings. For the last two weeks, Vansh had been admitted in Lucknow’s Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences. But due to lack to money, the treatment was getting stalled. Every day was crucial for the boy who was striving to live; against all odds. When everything seemed lost, Vansh’s mother who had heard about UPCM Akhilesh Yadav’s deeds of kindness, decided to approach him. She wrote a letter asking him for financial aid to save her child’s life. She created a profile on social media platform just to ensure that her pleas can reach the right people. The helpless mother shared a screenshot of the letter and tagged Akhilesh Yadav which became viral in no time. This caught the attention of the Digital CM who immediately directed the officials to look into the matter.
UPCM Akhilesh Yadav ardently followed up on this case personally and ordered the health centres to provide appropriate treatment to Vansh. He sanctioned complete financial aid for the entire procedure and tweeted about it to confirm the news.
Vansh’s parents could not believe their fate and are unable to thank the CM enough. The whole incident entails the power of digital platform of social networking sites and how Akhilesh Yadav is making the most of it to help every single person.
