Prime Minister Narendra Modi met the 6-year-old girl on Saturday who had written to him seeking help for her heart surgery owing to poor financial condition of her family.

The PMO responded promptly and arranged help for Vaishali Yadav, who needed surgery for a hole in her heart, through the Pune district administration. She was operated upon successfully earlier in June at a city hospital.

On Saturday, Vaishali got the opportunity to meet Modi, who was in Pune to launch projects under the Smart City mission.

The Prime Minister tweeted a photograph of his meeting with the little girl later.


“After her surgery, Vaishali wrote a touching letter to me, which will remain etched in my memory…glad we were able to help this little girl,” the Prime Minister said.
