Ray of hope, quick aid at premier in­ter­ac­tion

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - METRO - Ajay Kumar ht­varanasi@hin­dus­tan­times.com

An in­ter­ac­tion with Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi at his par­lia­men­tary of­fice in Ravin­dra­puri here on Fri­day gave Dilip Kumar Tri­pathi a ray of hope. He has been serv­ing the postal depart­ment on an ad hoc ba­sis for 28 years with­out his ser­vices be­ing reg­u­larised. The PM as­sured him that the mat­ter would be looked into

Tri­pathi was one of the 15 per­sons who had an op­por­tu­nity to put for­ward their prob­lems be­fore the PM here. Among oth­ers was a woman who had pe­ti­tioned him for the treat­ment of her can­cer-af­fected daugh­ter who has lost both her kid­neys. Kalyani Mishra said she was over­whelmed by the way the PM not only sym­pa­thised with her but also took im­me­di­ate ac­tion. “The PM im­me­di­ately di­alled some of­fi­cials in the PMO, and di­rected them to help me on top pri­or­ity. I never imag­ined that a prime min­is­ter can be so hum­ble and help­ing,” she said.

The PM’s hu­mil­ity im­pressed all the 15 pe­ti­tion­ers short-listed by the BJP for what the party called ‘’Janta Mi­lan’’. As they came out of the of­fice one by one, the sat­is­fac­tion of hav­ing talked to the PM was ev­i­dent on their faces.
