Rabesh Kumar Singh never thought Prime Minister Narendra Modi will respond to his tweet asking for the golden garland he wore during a rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandla.
But to his surprise, the research scholar at Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, received a letter from the Prime Minister’s Office saying that Modi will send the garland to him.
Singh received the garland on May 1 as well as a letter.
“I read your message on Twitter. You wrote that you liked the garland which was presented to me at Mandla during a ceremony of the Panchayati Raj Divas. I am sending the garland as a gift along with this letter. I hope that you succeed in every path of your life. I wish you all the best for the future,” the Prime Minister said in the letter.

Singh said he was so excited that he didn’t tell anyone about it and posted a picture wearing the garland on his Facebook page only two days later.
“I became so mesmerised by the garland that I could not restrain myself from demanding the same from PM and tweeted about it the next day hoping against hope,” Singh, a son of a farmer in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao, said on Friday.
“I can’t describe the happiness in words that I have received a garland from the Prime Minister,” he said.
The gift has created a buzz on the campus few weeks ahead of the convocation ceremony on May 25, which is likely to be attended by the Prime Minister.
