New Delhi, Mar 24: Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju has lauded two children for their financial contribution to Bharat Ke Veer scheme, launched by Centre to help families of martyred soldiers.
The minister shared their picture with Union Home Minister Rajnath Sinfh on Twitter and said, “two kids named Avanee Dalmia & Priyang Dalmia contributed Rs 1 lakh each to @BharatKeVeer fund from their own pocket money & handed over the cheque to @rajnathsingh ji. Salute to such amazing kids.”
Last year, the website of Bharat Ke Veer was launched by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.
