A school principal form Bareilly of Uttar Pradesh, in a heart-warming gesture has sold her jewelry to support the families of CRPF jawans, who died in recent Pulwama terror strike.
Kiran Jhagwal, who is a principal of a private school from Uttar Pradesh, has donated around Rs. 1.5 lakh, which she has received after selling her gold bangles to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.
Ms. Jhagwal said that “when I saw the wives of the soldiers weeping, I thought what I could do for them.”
She continued that “I then decided to sell my bangles and donate the money to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. The bangles were gifted by my father.”
The private school principal further urged other people of her locality to come forward and help the brave soldiers of our country.
“People must come forward. We are a population of crores and if everyone donates even one rupee, a lot can be collected,” added Ms. Jhagwal.
It is the time to stand united, the nation has stood up for its soldiers and their family members. People across the nation are leading a protest march against terrorism and terror outfits. They are also contributing their bit of income towards several relief funds to help the brave soldiers and their families.
In Rajasthan, around Rs. 6 lakhs, which was saved by a woman beggar, who died in 2018 was donated for the helpless families of the jawans.
In UP’s Rampur, Police Constable Firoz Khan has taken initiative to collect funds for families of dead CRPF jawans.
More than 40 CRPF jawans were killed in recent deadly terror attack on February 14, after a suicide bomber blew up his vehicle full of RDX near a CRPF convoy on Srinagar-Jammu Highway.
