In a heart-warming gesture, a 4-year-old kid name Hemanth had donated his savings of ₹941 to the Chief Minister’s relief fund at Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh. The boy, accompanied by his parents, handed over the money to the State Communications and Information Minister, Perni Venkatramaiah, at the YSRCP office in Tadepalli.
Hemanth had saved the amount to buy a new bicycle. Reportedly, the kid is fond of the State Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy. He requested that the money be handed over to the Chief Minister to fight the Chinese coronavirus. Venkatramaiah promised him that he himself would hand over his donation to the CM Reddy. The Minister congratulated the boy for his sweet gesture at a time of a global humanitarian crisis and also assured that he would buy a bicycle for Hemant.
