India Prime Minister Narendra Modi turned 67 yesterday and his fans, followers, and well-wishers around the world poured birthday wishes on his big day. He has created history by changing the face of politics in India. He was elected as the Prime Minister of our country in 2014 and since then, he has been doing whatever he can to make India a better place to live in.
From running a tea stall to becoming the PM of India, Modi’s dedication deserves a huge round of applause. In fact, he has set a great example for all world leaders. It has been a tough journey for him to be the person he is today. He is one of the inspiration to the youth in the country.
But, a few members of Rayalaseema Saguneeti Sadhana Samithi, a Kurnool-based NGO had sent a special gift to PM Modi on this occasion. The gift consists of 400 cheques of 68 paise only to highlight the neglect of the backward Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh State.
“We are sending 68 paise cheques as a token to draw your attention to our backwardness,” RSSS co-convener Yerva Ramachandra Reddy said. The group claimed that Rayalaseema remains one of the most backward regions in the country despite the abundant resources there. Kurnool, Anantapur, Chittoor, and Kadapa districts are deprived of water despite rivers like Krishna and Penna passing through it.
Among these districts, Anantapur receives the second lowest rainfall after Thar desert in the country. They claim that politicians are not interested in the farmer crisis in Rayalaseema due to the lack of political influence it carries.
