Conversing with KCR, who met him despite his packed schedule, Sarath revealed his dream of becoming a surgeon, the CM promised to finance his education, so that he can accomplish his desire of becoming a doctor. KCR also promised a fixed deposit of Rs 5 lakh to meet the boy’s medical expenses and a house for the family.

Dr Prathap Reddy, chairman Apollo group speaking on the occasion said, it’s a rare gesture for a Chief Minister and leader of KCR’s stature to take out time from his busy schedule and come and meet an ailing boy. He said other leaders should emulate him and show similar compassion.
