Generous contribution by Watchman giving 1-month salary to Tamil Nadu CM relief fund

While contributions from people and entities from all walks of life continue to pour in the state, a 59-year-old watchman donated his one month's salary to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister's COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Thangadurai, a night watchman from Chennai, donated Rs 10,101 to the chief minister's relief fund. He also believes that his contribution will benefit more people in need than his own struggle to make ends meet.

Hearing about the man's contribution, the chief minister met Thangadurai at the CM's office and gifted him a copy of M Karunanidhi's book Thirukural.

Taking to Twitter, MK Stalin wrote, “Thangadurai, a night watchman who couldn't meet me at first, had donated a month's salary to the CM's relief fund. After learning about this, I requested a meeting with him. And I gave him a book called Thirukural by Kalaignar.”

While speaking to the media, Thangadurai, who was surprised by the opportunity, shared his conversation with the CM.  “When I met with CM, he asked where I was from. CM thanked me and handed me a book after learning that I was donating my one-month salary,” said Thangadurai. Thangadurai further requested people to “wear a mask and break the chain” of the Covid-19.

Many people have come forward in response to the CM's request for a generous contribution to the CM's fund. Earlier, a seven-year-old boy had sent CM Rs 1000 from his savings, which he had saved to purchase his dream bicycle. As a surprise, the CM had given the boy a bicycle.
