At that time, A Aiswarya of Srimushnam, came with her mother and brother to the office. She gave a petition regarding the delay in renovation and also handed over the piggy bank.
Aiswarya said, “Dr Abdul Kalam memorial park, situated near her house has been in a sorry state for several years now, due to lack of maintenance work. I have requested the officials to renovate the park and also informed about this to you, during your visit to my village on August 11.
Since no action was taken, I decided to donate my piggy bank savings for the renovation work.” She stated the same in her petition and also requested to complete the work as soon as possible. Immediately, the Collector contacted the officials of the respective area and ordered them to start the works.
