This is my personal amount deposited and the money was in my accounts in which ever since this disaster relief fund came, many children were also breaking their piggy banks and distributing the money and in the disaster relief fund, all the employees, all the officials, the elderly The pension employees also withdrew their money from this disaster relief fund as per their capacity and gave it to the government.
When the children broke their piggy bank and gave money to the government, then when I also calculated my accounts from my three banks, I saw that I already had the idea in my mind and I collected all the money from my bank and it was deposited in the disaster relief fund.
I had money, I donated it either out of my own funds or at night, then I would feel that when children are giving, I am the Chief Minister of every state.
So I decided to collect the money from all my banks and donate the money I have today.
