Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has once again shown his class as he continues to extend his support to the needful.
One of the schools in West Bengal has requested Sachin Tendulkar for funds through a letter to set up a good infrastructure for the students. The legendary cricketer has reportedly donated over Rs. 70 lakh for the Swarnamoyee Sasmal Sikhsa Niketan in the Midnapore district of West Bengal.
The cricketer have made many donations to help the needed over the years but has found ample time to support the society in growth since he became the Rajya Sabha member post his retirement.
Sachin has already adopted a village named PuttamRaju Kandriga located in Andhra Pradesh and transformed it into a modern village with all facilities setting an example for all others in the country.
Coming to the school support, the management had no expectations that their plea will be considered. But Sachin as always with his helping hands donated a massive amount of 76 lakh under the Member of Parliament Local Area Development (MPLAD) scheme.
Sachin has said, “I wish to inform you that I have recommended to the honourable district collector Bandra, Mumbai, that funds be released to you for the above project. I understand that the honourable district collector of Bandra has further processed my recommendation and has provided necessary details to the honourable collector exercising jurisdiction in your area.”
The headmaster, Uttamkumar Mohanty said, “The realisation hasn’t yet sunk in. We have no words to express our gratitude.”
The school staff are also ready to approach for the help of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for further development of the school. The management are planning to invite Sachin Tendulkar to disclose the new facilities once everything is in place. “We will write to the MP to be present with us when we unveil the new infrastructure,” the headmaster said.
The Swarnamoyee Sasmal Sikhsa Niketan was built around 50 years ago and helps as many as 900 students for a better education.
