Talking to mediapersons on Tuesday, Shubham said, “If I achieve something in life, I will first stop my father from selling betel. I will support education of my sister and I will also work for betterment of society that ensured my education. My all earnings will go for charity, particularly for education of the girls of the families having little resources.”
