Blind youth donates Rs 110 crore to the PM relief fund for martyred Jawans
 
Murtaza Ali, a Kota based scientist working in Mumbai, has offered to donate a sum of 110 crores from his taxable income to the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund. He wanted to contribute the amount for the welfare of the martyred jawans and their families. He has sought an appointment to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the same.
 
The 44-years-old who is a born blind approached the Prime Minister Office through an email. Agnikumar Das, the Deputy Secretary for Relief fund's, had sought the profile of Murtaza Ali for the paperwork. The PMO has also sent him the reply of fixing the meeting in two to three days reportedly.
 
“Pulwama attack is an unfortunate thing that happened to our country in which we lost 40 mighty soldiers. I am thankful to God that I am capable to help the army and their families in some way. I have decided to give this amount to the National Relief Fund and I feel it is the responsibility of every Indian citizen to step forward and help our soldiers who sacrificed their lives for us,” said Murtaza.
 
Though blind, Murtaza was graduated from Kota Commerce College and he also came up with a proposal called Fuel Burn Radiation Technology which helps to locate any kind of vehicle without GPS.
 
It is appreciable that apart from the celebrities like Lata Mangeshkar, Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar who came forward to contribute to the welfare of the army, the general public are also taking up the responsibility to serve the nation.
