Our politicians have the property in crores , If they make up their minds and think of the public as their family this situation wouldn’t come to anyone to beg for life. How sad ? Whatever they do they need a press meet to show to public about the account of the finance given and also publicity.

These people have come forward to help the poor family for girl struggling for life. If our politicians had this attitude there was no need for collecting funds from public.
