Akhilesh Yadav thanked the media for showcasing the story of Raju and Brijesh, from
Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh. The Saroj brothers, sons of a daily wage earner made the entire
state proud by clearing IIT entrance examination in one single attempt. This prestigious
moment was highlighted by the media and hence reached the Chief Minister of Uttar
Pradesh, who could now extend his help to the two boys and their families.
The Digital CM said, “I need to thank the members of the press for bringing the issue into
spotlight as it was only after this that the children reached me. Whenever you (media) will
bring any such case to our notice, the Samajwadi Party, government will come forward and
help the poor.”
Akhilesh Yadav felicitated the hard working boys who overcame all odds, and announced
that the state government would bear the expenses of their admission process and
education as their family could not afford it. He has also awarded them with a laptop each
to help them in future studies.
