Ahmadabad, May 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday got emotional while interacting with the daughter of a beneficiary of the government schemes who was visually challenged at an online event for the beneficiaries of government schemes in Gujarat.
PM Modi choked up at the plight of Ayub Patel's problem as he spoke of his daughter's dreams to become a doctor.
Patel shared with PM Modi how his eyesight got affected when he was in Saudi Arabia. "I had gone to Saudi Arabia when I used some eye drop..." When the PM asked him what the doctors suggested, the man told him - "There is no solution now... It's glaucoma."
The prime minister then asked the man about his daughters, and he said: "My daughters are studying - one in class 8 and the other in class 12, and the third one is class 1. The government will take care of the youngest one's education till class 8. The other two also get a scholarship."
PM Modi asked the reason for the daughter to choose the medical profession as a career, to which she said, "I want to become a doctor because of the problem that my father is suffering from".
