New Delhi: The Congress-affiliated National Students’ Union of India on Friday provided financial assistance to children of some migrant labourers and also organised a blood donation camp on the occasion of Rahul Gandhi’s birthday, according to a statement.
The Congress leader did not celebrate his birthday due to the Galwan valley incident in Ladakh where soldiers sacrificed their lives, it said.
A boy from Delhi, Chand Mohammad, who had to lift COVID-19 patients’ bodies to make money for his mother’s treatment and sisters’ education was provided assistance, the statement said.
