“Certainly, it is a difficult task. We have drafted an ambitious rehabilitation plan for the widows. Financial assistance will be provided by the NGOs and also my own fund. On Monday, we handed over cheques of a nominal amount to 90 widows from Wardha district,” Roy told TOI. He said by doing this, he was merely trying to understand the plight of framers in the Vidarbha region. “We are not claiming to rehabilitate all the farmers in distress, but our effort will at least take care of those widows who are now steeped in poverty,” he added.
Good to know that people are taking up the issue. Though the cause wont be changed with such efforts but it would definitely give some relief to diseased. And Mr. Roy understand that too. More power to him.
