Thanks To PMO: 6-year-Old BPL Girl Gets Free Heart Surgery

“Modi Sarkar mala madat pahije”, which means “Help me, Modi government”, was what 6-year-old Vaishali Yadav from Pune’s Hadapsar wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Vaishali had a hole in her heart and was too poor to afford a surgery. Her father, a small-time painter, was unable to afford the expensive heart surgery which amounted to Rs. 3 lakh. Five days after posting that letter with her school identity card, PM Modi answered her plea. Vaishali got a free surgery done this week at Ruby Hall Clinic, after a letter from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) prompted the district collector to convene a meeting with representatives from all Pune hospitals. Now that is what looks like ‘acche din’.
