A watchman in Tamil Nadu donates one month salary to CM relief fund: CM invites him to his office

Thangadurai, a 59-year-old night watchman from Chennai, donated one month's salary to the Chief Minister's Public Relief Fund (CMPRF) to help the state government combat the Covid-19 pandemic. He believes that his contribution will help more people than his own financial difficulties.

Thangadurai made a ₹10,101 donation to the chief minister's relief fund.

When the chief minister learned of Thangadurai's contribution, he invited him to the CM's office and presented him with 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.”

Thangadurai, while speaking to the media, 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 went on to say that people should "wear a mask and break the chain" of the Covid-19.
