A video clip is doing the rounds on social media where the Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath is seen gently interacting with a 6-year-old girl, while the latter greets the CM with a rose, a garland and a Radha-Krishna idol during his visit to the Susvalia village of Padrauna block in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh. The CM was on a visit to Deoria and Kushinagar district on May 26 (Wednesday) to review the pandemic preparedness in these places, when he met the 6-year-old, Khusboo.
“Dada, yeh aapke liye”, says the little girl, while gifting a rose flower to Yogi Adithyanath, who in turn, lovingly enquires about the class she studies in.
The CM explains to the girl that due to the pandemic situation, temporarily she would be required to study from the house and not go to school.
The girl then gifts the Uttar Pradesh CM a Radha-Krishna idol, which Yogi Adityanath politely returns. “Yeh meri taraf se tumhare liye” (this you keep from my side), says Yogi Adityanath, while gently drawing her closer to him for a picture. The girl also carried a letter, addressed to the CM from her family, in her hand, which Yogi Adityanath accepts politely. The girl then seeks the blessing of the CM by touching his feet.
The heart-warming incident happened when Yogi Adityanath went to meet the family members of a home isolated Covid-19 patient at her home in Susvalia village of Padrauna block to ask about her well being. While he was leaving the village he was greeted by the 6-year-old.
