Ram Prakash, an artisan who made traditional turbans for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Lucknow last year, has reached out to them asking for financial assistance to save his wife’s life.
As per the reports, Prakash took to the Twitter to make his plea reach to PM Modi. Taking to the micro-blogging site, Prakash said that his wife is battling with blood cancer which is why he needs some financial help for the treatment.
An NDTV report quoted Prakash who told, “At the initial stage of the treatment I have spent as much as Rs 1 lakh. All my savings have been wiped out. I have urged the Prime Minister and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister to provide me financial help.”
“No official in the town has come forward to help me. I am sure that the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister will take some action and help me out,” he added.
The report further stated that Director of King George’s Medical hospital Sushir Singh has claimed that Prakash does not have an income certificate, that is why he is not getting financial aid from any of the authorities. Singh added that the concerned hospital authorities are looking into the matter and making all efforts to help Prakash in all possible manners.
