New York, May 27: Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor has urged the government to work on employment, education and health provisions for the people.
Rishi, who is currently undergoing medical treatment in New York, took Twitter to reach out Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Arun Jaitley, shared his concerns after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) achieved a massive victory in the Lok Sabha elections.
“My sincerest wish, desire and request to the re-elected BJP, Arun Jaitley, Smriti Irani and the honourable PM Narendra Modiji… Please work upon getting India free education, medical, pension… It’s difficult but if you start working on today, we will achieve it one day,” Rishi wrote.
“After seeing the graduations happening here and hearing about specialised treatments in hospitals, why can only the few avail/afford these. After all, most doctors and teachers here in the US are Indians,” he added.
Kapoor stated focus on these aspects could give us “the India we Indians want to see”.
“Literacy will give the educated youth decent jobs and the sick a full life. A true Democracy — a chance,” he asserted , adding: “Please excuse me if I have over stepped but being a citizen I feel my duty to voice it.”
