Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has launched a web portal and a mobile app called Bharat Ke Veer for helping donors to contribute towards the families of Central Armed Police Force.
Akki, who was recently honoured with National Award for Best Actor for his film Rustom, was extremely emotional at the launch. He said, “This website has been made exactly in two and a half months. About three months, this idea came in my mind, while watching a documentary film on terrorists, which showed how terror leaders financially support the families of the terrorist who carry out terror acts.”
He said he was there as his father’s son. “Everybody wants to connect to people in uniform in their pain. It was a small dream and to fulfill this dream, our government really helped us. I want to thank everybody with my folded hands. My father was in Army and I am here as his son,” he added.
“It has been our constant effort to ensure that a family of a martyr who is killed in action does not get a compensation amount less than a crore…I have said that I am even ready to spread my hands and seek funds from my countrymen in this regard,” Rajnath Singh said during the ceremony which also marked the annual Valour Day event of the CRPF.
