Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on his 49th birthday received a gift from a poor woman labourer, which moved him to tears. Among all the gifts and wishes from all over the world, it was a birthday gift of Rs 101 that made Fadnavis emotional. It was small amount, sent by a daily wage-earner, Renuka Sahil Gondhali from Chincholi village in Ahmednagar according to IANS.
Gondhali saved the amount from her tiny earnings and sent the gift to the Chief Minister Relief Fund (CMRF) by money order, said an aide to the CM. The gift also had a handwritten letter on a page torn from a notebook in which she expressed gratitude to him for saving her nephew's life.
The letter said, "CM Saheb, you took my SMS seriously and saved the life of my brother's son. I pray that you should do such a great service for others too, and hence I am sending a small contribution from my side. God bless you with a long life and you should be given a chance to serve the nation," Renuka`s letter said and wished him 'Happy Birthday'.
Renuka Sahil Gondhali
She narrated how her five-year old nephew, Vedant Bhagwat Pawar from Kanakori village in Gangapur, Aurangabad was suffering from gallbladder cancer last year. The boy's parents were too poor and could ill-afford Vedant's expensive treatment, though they had already spent a large amount to save him.
It was then that Renuka S. Gondhali decided to try her luck by sending an SoS message on the Chief Minister's mobile requesting for financial aid for her ailing nephew. After receiving the SM, Fadnavis made enquiries and immediately sanctioned Rs 1.90 lakh from the Chief Minister Relief Fund for Vedant's treatment. This helped the boy getting proper treatment at the MRCC Children Hospital in Mumbai.

Chief Minister received many gifts, best wishes and flowers from many VVIPs, celebrities, diplomats and other dignitaries, but this invaluable gift of Rs 101 and the simple letter from the lady made him emotional and left him deeply touched, mentioned CM's aide.
