The big-heart, who draws only Rs 12,000 monthly salary, met Municipal Administration Minister K.T. Rama Rao, on Tuesday, and handed over her donation.
Her gesture hugely impressed the Minister, who has been receiving huge donations from industrialists and prominent personalities on a daily basis. He appreciated Alivelu for her commitment towards the society and applauded her gesture.
Received a tweet 👇couple of days ago from a GHMC worker called Alivelu saying she wants to contribute one month’s salary to CMRF— KTR (@KTRTRS) April 28, 2020
Intrigued, asked @KTRoffice to arrange a meeting. She came in today with the cheque & insisted that I accept it. Didn’t want anything from my side🙏 pic.twitter.com/J57hocpoiL
She has been delivering services as a sanitation worker in the Tolichowki circle for the past five years. Her husband Sailam is a daily wager at a vegetable market and her two children are studying in school.
Alivelu said many suggested her not to contribute money during these difficult times. But her husband and children who stood by her and encouraged her to contribute.
