Devraj from Banda, Uttar Pradesh got a new life when his photo went viral on a social media platform and caught the eye of our Digital Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav. In an accident, 40 years ago, Devraj lost his left leg but this did not break his spirit. He would tie a wooden block and continue his daily chores and farming, to feed his family.
Life changed for Devraj, when someone inspired by him, posted his picture online which went viral. Akhilesh Yadav, who is known to provide prompt help, announced to help Devraj with an artificial limb surgery and financial aid of Rs 5 lakh, immediately. An overjoyed Devraj said, “We are happy that the chief minister understood our problems and helped us out.”
Akhilesh Yadav has been known to help people in times of need. He has gone out of his way multiple times to extend support to the financially weak. This is also reflected in his Budget 16-17, which focuses on the farmer’s plight and issues Samajwadi Bima Care Card for them.
