Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development KT Rama Rao on Thursday recognised the sacrifice of a poor woman, a daily wage earner, for donating half of the ration that she received for people less fortunate than her. He tweeted about Anuradha, a widow who lives in a rented accommodation at Shamirpet in Medchal district.

Anuradha and her family that includes two sons, a daughter and a daughter-in-law are eligible for a rice quota of 60 kg which she receives from local fair price shops. Knowing the troubles faced by other daily wagers during tough times, she decided to return half of it for the poor. She promptly returned 30 kg to Additional Collector Vidyasagar who could not resist greeting her with folded hands. The news item went viral.

Been hearing and seeing some amazing stories last couple of weeks. Let’s recognise some Good Samaritans as Citizen Heroes. Anuradha who’s a mother of 3 and from a BPL family chose to return half the ration that was allotted and asked officials for it to be distributed among other poor.” tweeted Rama Rao through his official Twitter handle on Thursday.

Thanking the Minister, the district Collector responded saying, “Sir! Thanks for your kind support and it is further being expanded. A poor woman paved the way for rich thinking for human kind”.

Even as Anuradha was donating half of her monthly ration to the poor, many others who were standing in the queue also decided to forgo a part of their share. It was reported that a whopping 95 quintals of rice have been returned and sent for distribution among the less fortunate.
