In our Cricket crazy nation, Cricket is considered a religion and Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is known as the God of Cricket. The numerous achievements and laurels he won for the country are inspirational and this soft spoken legend is a hero off the field too.
We all know that Sachin is a Rajya Sabha MP and that he adopted a slummy village in Nellore named Puttamraj Kandriga through the MP Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS). Sachin adopted the village in November and since then, he joined hands with village locals and administrative to transform the downtrodden village into a modestly developed area. Sachin spent about 2.79 crores from the MPLADS funds.
After the renovation which lasted 4 months, the modest village is now brimming with concrete roads, 24 hour power supply, sewage treatment plant and several toilets across the village. Needless to say, the villagers are happy and elated for Sachin's generosity and could not thank him enough. Well, that our Bharat Ratna for us guys. A true lover of the country.
