Punjab girl writes to Modi in blood over non-payment of rent

India Politics Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Her father Randhira Singh Dhira had not received the rent for their house, leased out to the Child Development and Protection Officer (CDPO), Mamdot, in the district of Ferozepur, Punjab. So sixth standard student Kriandeep Kaur, appealed to “Modi Uncle” to intervene. She wrote her appeal in red. She used her own blood.

Modi Uncle, Namaskar. Please Hame Bacha lo. Uncle Modi ji, yeh “beti bachao, beti padhao” ka khoon hai. Hamey nyaya dijiye.” (Uncle Modi, Namaskar. Please save us. Uncle Modi, this is the blood of beti bachao, beti padhao. Give us justice)

The letter was investigated by the local authorities, and it transpired that Kirandeep's father had not received the rent for the property he had leased out from March 2014. The father, who ran from pillar to post, issued a legal notice and also met Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal.

Sources in Chandigarh said when Randhira Singh Dhira pleaded before the deputy commissioner for his inability to get school admission of her daughter, buy books and to run other household affairs, a financial assistance of Rs 10,000 was given to him, not the rent with arrears—Rs 8673 per month from March 2014.

Dhira plans to meet the chief minister at the next “Sangat Darshan” (meeting with the people), during which Badal hears people's grievances and promises action within a week.
