Hyderabad: TRS Working President KTR once again stepped in and helped top rank holders from various streams pursue their higher studies. KTR was approached by Empati Kushwanth through social media, asking for financial aid after he made a mark by earning a free seat in AIIMS, Delhi.
Kushwanth secured the first rank in Telangana EAMCET, 8th rank in AP EAMCET and 50th rank in all India NEET entrance exams.
Kushwanth is a native of Mancherial district, Sri Ram Puram village. Recently, his father Lakshmi Narayana passed away in a road accident. After his father’s death, Kushwanth along with his mother Anita migrated to Bhupalpally where his mother took up stitching work to run the house.
When KTR learned about Kushwanth’s situation through social media, he immediately responded and called them for a meeting. Kushwanth met KTR today at Pragathi Bhavan where the two had a brief interaction.
KTR handed over the Chief Minister Relief Fund (CMRF) cheque of Rs 5 lakhs to Kushwanth which will help him in pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor.
Excise and Sports Minister Srinivas Goud and Warangal Rural ZPTC Gandra Jyothi were also present in the meeting.
Two other students met KTR today where the latter, in his personal-capacity, provided financial aid to them to pursue their higher studies.
National Institute of Nutrition entrance first rank holder, K. Lavanya, is a native of Medchal district, Gajula Ramaram Mandal. Her father works as a daily wage laborer at an industry in Medchal. Due to poor financial conditions, Lavanya’s parents couldn’t arrange money for her higher studies. That is when she approached KTR on Twitter who immediately responded and provided her the amount required for her higher studies.
Another student Pavan, a native of Sundaraiah Nagar, Sircilla had earlier got a free seat in VNR Vignan Jyothi college and is studying third year B. Tech. Pavan’s father runs a small tea stall in Sircilla. Failing to pay the college fee, Pavan approached KTR through Twitter. KTR in his personal- capacity helped Pavan by providing the required fee amount. (INN)
