“Please help my mother”, Saalumarada Thimmakka’s son’s humble appeal to CM

“Please help my mother”, Saalumarada Thimmakka’s son’s humble appeal to CM


Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Aug 22, 2015: Saalumarada Thimmakka might have created history by planting many trees selflessly and is striving ceaselessly for the cause of environment, but  that she still lives under abject poverty conditions just exposes the way in which our administrations and governments  have been treating  environmentalists like her who have dedicated their entire life for the cause of Mother Nature.

That the government has been doing injustice to such a great woman was evident when her adopted son Umesh N  narrated the plight of Saalumarada Thimmakka at a press meet which was convened prior to the  book release ceremony which she participated on August 22, Saturday.

“Thimmakka might have become a famous personality without seeking any publicity but  still her life is full of difficulties as she has  to depend on the meager Rs 500 which she gets under Senior Citizens’ Pension Scheme. She still lives below poverty line, ‘said Umesh.

‘So far she has not received any sort of help neither from the State Government or the Centre.  When she was ill and hospitalized, the leaders only made a beeline to the hospital and gave assurances, ,” he said adding that he sincerely wished the government helped and did something  for her when she was alive rather than  doing something after she departs from this world.”

Regretting that she has still not been conferred the Karnataka Ratna Award, Umesh made a humble request to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to come to the aid of his mother.
