Jaisalmer: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is a man of gold and his actions justify this as well as his words. The actor recently extended s financial support of Rs 9 lakh to the family of jawan Narpat Singh, who lost his life in an IED blast in Assam. Not only did he support the family but also spoke to Narpat’s wife for 15 minutes over phone and expressed the grief for the mishap.
The family members were extremely grateful to the actor for taking out some time from his busy schedule and talking to them. Akshay have visited the border several times to encourage the soldiers and to remind that we as a country are always thankful to whatever they are doing for us and are always there for them.
The actor knows the feeling and can understand the pathetic condition of the families who have lost their loved ones during the attacks as his father was also an army personnel and know the problems faced by a soldier.
Akshay have come forward and started a campaign to help the martyred families financially and has already helped 6-7 families so far. The actor extended Rs 9 lakh to the family of BSF soldier Guruman and then he extended Rs 9 lakh recently to the family members of martyr Narpat Singh through RTGS. We can only ask others to also come forward and help the families who have lost their loved ones while they are protecting the country on the border.
The family members of martyr Narpat are really annoyed over the behaviour of the state government which has not announced any financial help for the families of the martyred soldiers.
