KARIMNAGAR: IT minister K. T. Rama Rao has come to the rescue of three children who have turned orphans during this second wave of Coronavirus pandemic at Oglapur village in Malliala mandal of Jagtial district.
Busi Sattaiah, a resident of Oglapur had returned from the Gulf two months ago.
He got infected with Covid-19 after his return and died while undergoing treatment on June 4. Sattaiah’s wife had died several years ago. As a result, their three children – Akshara, Sahitya and Harshavardhan had turned into orphans.
A resident of the village Nallala Sai Kiran tweeted to the IT minister about the plight of these children. Responding immediately to that post, Rama Rao directed district collector G. Ravi to help the children. He also asked Choppadandi MLA Sunke Ravi Shankar to follow up on the matter.
Following this, the MLA visited the house where the orphaned kids have been staying and handed over Rs. 1 lakh to them. He said arrangements will be made to enrol the three kids into a government residential school, so that they could continue their studies. Sunke Ravi further assured that a double-bedroom house will be sanctioned to them.
