Beneficiaries receive cheques from MLA at their doorstep
Anitha Kindoddi was busy making preparations for the marriage of her daughter Shanti, who completed B. Ed when she received a surprise visitor to their home on Saturday.
Sangareddy legislator Chinta Prabhakar accompanied by Municipal Chairperson P. Vijaya Lakshmi and others knocked on the door and the MLA handed over a cheque for ₹ 75,116. The amount was sanctioned by the government to the family to meet marriage expenses under Kalayna Lakshmi scheme. Apart from the cheque Mr. Prabhakar presented the family a sari as a personal gift for the festive occasion.
“We are grateful to the government. We do not have any property and raising money for performing the marriage would have been a herculean task. Luckily the government has come to our rescue and the MLA came to our house and gave us the cheque. It’s great,” said S. Lakshmi, another resident of the mandal headquarters town, with folded hands. Sangareddy MLA visited 37 families in the town and handed over the cheques under Kalayana Lakshim and Shaadi Mubarak.
