Ray of hope, quick aid at premier interaction
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.
