PM Modi personally donates Rs 21 lakh to Kumbh Safai Karamchari corpus

Earlier PM Modi had decided to donate the Rs 1.3 crore received with Seoul Peace Prize to Namami Gange initiative.

Today Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to donate Rs 21 lakh to Kumbh Safai Karamchari corpus, with his own personal savings. The fund is meant for those sanitation workers who were tasked with keeping the event of Kumbh Mela at Prayraj, clean. The Kumbh Mela concluded on March 4.

On February 24th, PM Modi had himself visited Pryagraj to attend the Mela where he had attended Swachh Kumbh Swachh Aabhaar event, organized by Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation. During his visit, PM Modi had washed feet of some of the sanitation workers of Kumbh to pay respect. The gesture had received wide appreciation and was seen as an exceptional way to pay respect to workers.

In order to generate money for the Clean Ganga initiative, PM Modi in January had sent gifts and mementoes that he had received to auction. More than 1800 items, which included paintings, sculptures, shawls, pagris, jackets and traditional musical instruments from across the country, had gone under hammer. As CM of Gujarat too,  Modi had raised Rs around Rs 90 crore by auctioning all gifts he received as CM. This money was donated to the Kanya Kelavani Fund for the education of girls.

During PM Modi’s recent two-day South Korea visit, he was conferred with the prestigious Seoul Peace Prize for his efforts in changing lives of 1.25 billion people of India and promoting economic cooperation with other countries, in accordance with the ‘Modi Doctrine’ and the Act East Policy. PM Modi was presented with a plaque, award and an honorarium sum. PM Modi had decided to donate the Rs 1.3 crore, received with the award, to Namami Gange initiative.

Also, before PM Modi resigned as CM of Gujarat, he had donated the sum of Rs 21 lakh from personal saving for the education of daughters of Gujarat government staff.
