Lucknow: An 11-year-old boy from Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking medical help as ‘both his kidneys have failed’.

Rakesh, a government school student and whose father is a labourer, wrote in the letter, “Every fifth day, I have to go to Agra, which is 45 km from my village for my dialysis. And even there, doctors have told my parents that I haven't got much time left.”

 

According to a report, Rakesh’s mother died in grief of her son’s disease.

In the letter, Rakesh mentioned that his father has sold all his agricultural land and all that his family had to get him cured, but his condition has not improved.

Expressing his desire to live, Rakesh wrote, “I will be very thankful to you if you could help me get treated. I could live longer and see myself grow into a man.”

“Our Prime Minister is a very nice and loving person. He cares for children. It is my sincere request to him to please help me.”

 

"Please help me Modiji. I am my father's only child and if anything happens to me, there will be no one to take care of my father,” Rajesh further mentioned is his letter.
