Actor Akshay Kumar Thanked Me to Pay Tribute To CRPF Martyrs | He can thank you too…
JaiHind! My name is Shailesh Kumar. I am a TV Journalist by profession. Yesterday i.e. on 24 April 2017, 25 of our brave Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans martyred in a naxal attack in Sukma, South Bastar in Chhatisgarh. These bravehearts laid down their lives in line of their duty to protect us Indians. Maoists are enemy of the humanity. I always believe that we as a nation, as a society, as an individual have our duty to take care of the martyrs families afterwards. I really appreciate and inspired to see our beloved Bollywood actor Mr. Akshay Kumar taking initiative and donating Rs. 1 crore and 8 lakh to CRPF martyrs a few days before yesterday’s unfortunate incident.
He not only donated but took initiative to start a website [ www.bharatkeveer.gov.in ] with active participation of officials of Union Home Ministry, Government of India. On Valour Day i.e. on 9th April, Akshay Kumar and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated the website. Through this website, anyone can contribute a sum of money to the martyrs families. Today, after seeing the supreme sacrifice of our brave CRPF soldiers in Sukma, I have decided to contribute a thousand rupees as my tribute to the families or brave hearts. Actor Akshay Kumar thanked me for my contribution. He can thank you too… and I am sure he will when you make your contribution.
I have made this video to explain the process of making a contribution through Bharat Ke Veer. I assume that this video will certainly help my fellow Indians, whether living in India or NRIs living in other parts of the world. It is my humble request to you to kindly donate, contribute for this noble cause. All good causes should not be left to the Government for execution but we Indians should take initiative and do our bits to build our nation- a great India. Please do contribute and share the video. Thank You Indeed. How To Contribute using www.bharatkeveer.gov.in
