L to R: Anil More, Narendra Modi
A small-time tea seller from Maharashtra’s Baramati Anil More sent a money order of ₹100 to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to get his beard shaved.
More, who runs a tea stall opposite a private hospital on Indapur road said, “PM Modi has grown his beard. If he should increase something, it must be employment opportunities for the people of this country. Attempts must be made to accelerate vaccination for the population and there must be efforts to step up the existing medical facilities. The PM must make sure people are rid of their miseries that are caused by the last two lockdowns.”
He further said, “I have utmost respect and admiration for our Prime Minister. I am sending Rs 100 for my savings to him so that he shaves his beard. He is the supreme leader and I don’t intend to hurt him. But the way, in which the problems of the poor are growing by the day due to the pandemic, this is a way to draw his attention.”
He also requested him to provide financial assistance of ₹5 lakh to families of those who died of COVID-19 infection and ₹30,000 for the families who were affected by the lockdown.
