In a rare incident, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sent a letter to a rickshaw puller in Varanasi, which happens to be his Lok Sabha constituency. In the letter, PM Modi has congratulated the rickshaw puller, Mangal Kevat, on his daughter’s marriage.
The letter was a reply to the one sent by the rickshaw puller inviting him to visit his daughter’s wedding.
“Some of my friends asked me to send an invitation to Modiji so I sent one to Delhi and one to his Varanasi office,” he said adding, “I never expected a response but now that we have got his letter, we are overjoyed. I have shown the letter to all the guests at my daughter’s wedding.”
Mangal Kevat, who lives in Domri village that has been adopted by the Prime Minister, brimmed with joy on receiving the letter.
For more details, Mangal Kevat, as per a report by Livemint, is a staunch devotee of Ganga River and spends a part of his earnings in offering prayers to the river. Besides, he is also an active participant in the Swachh Bharat campaign.
