Taiyyaba, who has congenital heart disease, wrote to PM Modi explaining her heart condition and requested for financial help. In her letter she said that as per doctors, her treatment would cost around 15-20 lakhs and her father could not afford it.
The family in Agra was shocked to receive a letter from the Prime Minister's Office, asking for details. The office has directed the Delhi Government to ensure that Taiyyaba receives proper treatment regardless of the cost.
"I had spoken to my mother that father is always tense and I had seen on television that the prime minister helps everybody. Even I am an Indian citizen and have the right to live so this idea struck me, that I should write to the prime minister for help," the girl was quoted as saying in an NDTV report.
Family of the girl has been assured of an immediate checkup at the GB pant Hospital in Delhiand the hospital has also been directed to begin Taiyyaba's treatment.
