Our youth are our pride, the people who will take our nation to newer heights of progress. It is our first and foremost duty to help our youngsters when they face any trouble or ailment.

7-year-old Vaishali from Pune belongs to a lesser-privileged family and was suffering from a hole in her heart for more than two years. Imagine the ordeal she would have had to suffer all these years!

When young Vaishali decided to write a letter to the Prime Minister seeking help for a heart ailment little did she know that the Prime Minister would not only reply to help her but also personally meet her and boost her morale.

Vaishali’s two-page letter was an emotional plea to the Prime Minister of India, to help her as his daughter so that her dream of becoming a police officer comes true.

Taking cognizance of the letter, the Prime Minister asked officials to ensure Vaishali was identified, she get access to proper medical examination and her treatment done free of cost.

Once this happened, Vaishali wrote a very touching letter to the Prime Minister and attached a drawing with the letter, to which the also Prime Minister replied.

Then, when the Prime Minister visited Pune on 25th June 2016, he personally met young Vaishali and her family. Shri Modi said that this meeting will remained etched in his memory.

The anecdote of Vaishali is just one example. Several such letters from people reach the Prime Minister and his office. Every effort is made to address the issue concerned and ensure the citizens of India face no trouble.
