Ever since Prime Minister (PM) Modi have assumed power all his policy decisions and announcements have been embraced by the people of India. Before the demonetisation drive the PM had launched schemes and drives like the ‘Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna’ wherein the poorest pf the poor was given an opportunity to come under the banking records and with zero balance. Another scheme which was more of an appeal to the well to do citizenry to give up the subsidy on the LPG cylinders so that those houses could get the opportunity of cooking gas which used wood and coal to cook food so far. The urge of the PM resonated with the well to do citizens and many gave up their share of subsidy and the benefit arising thereof was directly transferred for those who were in need.
Now, Hardoi a district in eastern Uttar Pradesh (UP) have responded to the PM’s call. School children have donated as much as Rs 73,000 in small denominations to help other citizens. This has come out as a source of great inspiration and example that the infants and teenagers have exhibited. On being asked as to why they sacrificed their small savings in their piggy bank a student said that, “People are facing trouble due to demonetisation, so we decided to help them by providing smaller currency notes from our piggy banks.”
