PM Modi gets emotional on Gujarat girl’s dream of becoming a doctor

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday had an emotional moment while interacting with a daughter of a beneficiary of the government schemes who was visually challenged.
Modi was speaking during his virtual address at ‘Utkarsh Samaroh’ in Gujarat’s Bharuch city.
The event was organised by the Bharuch district administration to mark 100 per cent saturation of four key schemes of the state government meant for providing financial assistance to widows, the elderly and destitute citizens.

PM Modi interacted with one of the beneficiaries Ayub Patel before addressing the program virtually.
Ayub, who was visually challenged, told PM Modi during the interaction that he has three daughters and one of them wanted to become a doctor.
Speaking directly to the daughter, who was sitting next to her father, the Prime Minister asked why she wanted to be a doctor.
“I want to become a doctor because of many reasons but mostly because of the problems my dad has been through,” the girl replied before bursting into tears.
In response, PM Modi stayed silent for a few moments before responding, “Your compassion is your strength,” he said. “Let me know if you need any help to fulfill the dream of your daughters.”
