Lucknow, Nov 18: In a very touching gesture school children at Hardoi in Uttar Pradesh donated Rs 73,000 from their piggy bank savings to help people.
The children who had saved money in small denomination notes and coins came out and donated the same so that it would help the people.
The move comes at a time when people are waiting outside banks and ATMs to withdraw money. Many are cash strapped after the government announced that the Rs 500 and 1,000 notes will cease to be legal tender.
Several people continue to wait outside banks and ATMs to withdraw money. The government too is coping with the demand supply mismatch. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sought 50 days time to bring the situation under control.
