This rickshaw puller just got a letter from PM

Varanasi, Feb 14 (IANS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sent a letter to a rickshaw puller Mangal Kevat, who is from the PM's Lok Sabha constituency, Varanasi.

The letter, which reached the Kevat family on Thursday, congratulated them on the marriage of their daughter which took place on the day.

In the letter Modi sent his blessings and best wishes to the new bride and her family.

The family, needless to add, is brimming with joy.

Mangal Kewat, who lives in Domri village that has been adopted by the Prime Minister, had sent his daughter's wedding invite to the Prime Minister.

"Some of my friends asked me to send an invitation to Modiji so I sent one to Delhi and one to his Varanasi office.

"I never expected a response but now that we have got his letter, we are overjoyed. I have shown the letter to all guests at my daughter's wedding," he said.

Mangal Kevat is a staunch devotee of Ganga River and spends a part of his earnings in offering prayers to the river. He is also is an active participant in the Swachh Bharat campaign.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the BJP's membership campaign, had enrolled Kevat as a party member.

    This has happened before also. Modi, we all know, is an expert in public relations and that is where everything ends. By now all would be aware of this man's strategy but unfortunately some blind followers are unable to differentiate between what he says and what he does. How nice and appropriate it would be if he says a word about unity among all Indians. How nice it would be if he tries to bring all communities together and how nice it would be if he would talk about breaking barriers that are separating Indians and Indians. But not a word on that.

    That's why he called a leader.. It's called leadership skills... Auto generated mails comes through electronic mails (email) not post office mails... People like you are only fit for pappu bhakt vs Modi bhakt talks.. Just imagine the joy of the family which got a reply from a PM of a nation that too for their daughters wedding... The only reason India is still developing nation is because of bhakt talkers like you who never see a bigger picture and relate everything to politics or just politicize it.
