Amitabh Bachchan’s philanthropic gesture to alleviate misery of peasants in Maharashtra

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has forwarded cheque worth Rs. 30 lakhs for 114 peasants in Maharashtra. 

In Maharashtra, many peasants are committing suicide unable to bear the brunt of mounting debts.  Currently, Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has forwarded a cheque worth Rs. 30 lakhs to peasants in Vardha, which is located in Vidharba district.  The cheques were presented to the peasants by local MP Dutta Maekae. 

For the peasants, Union Bank of India, State Bank of India and Vardha district cooperative bank have given loans.  In the cheque presentation event, 90 peasants participated.  For peasants who did not appear for the event, the cheque was presented at their homes.

Peasants from Pandalkhand in Uttar Pradesh have forwarded request to Amitabh Bachchan to present cheque in similar fashion.

Peasants in Vidharba are committing suicide due to mounting debts.  Now, peasants are happy at Amitabh Bachchan’s gesture.

An NGO in Vidharba, Jan Andolan, has commended the gesture Amitabh Bachchan made.
