Cricketers have stepped in to help the needy people across the country after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day lockdown until April 14. Meanwhile, the critics have hit out against the players over the amount they have contributed as an aid. And Pragyan Ojha, the former Indian spinner, has slammed those critics saying that a help is help and no one has the right to question the amount one has donated for the coronavirus relief.
Coronavirus pandemic has left every single individual’s life quite miserable. The things have gone from bad to worse with death rate due to novel COVID-19 increasing with every day passing. So, the celebrities have taken an initiative to come forward and donate some big amounts to help the needy, underprivileged and poor, who are having no source of income to earn during the ongoing lockdown.
We should to be thankful to the donors, says Pragyan Ojha
On March 24, after taking a survey of the conditions, Narendra Modi announced a lockdown in the country. He also requested everyone to come out and help the nation. So many sports personalities like Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Mithali Raj, Sourav Ganguly, Suresh Raina among others came out and donated amounts to PM-CARES and CM Relief funds. It was an overwhelming attempt from the players. But, some critics began weighing the aid given by the players based on the amount they contributed.
Now, Pragyan Ojha, the former Indian spinner has taken a strong dig against those critics. He took to his Twitter handle and said that it is very strange that people helping the needy and poor are being questioned based on the amount they have donated. No one has got the right to quest them. Moreover, everyone should be thankful to them.
He shared a post that read, “It’s very strange to see people who are coming forward to give a helping hand in this crisis by donating are being questioned (how much have they donated). A help is a help, it is not measured. We should be thankful to them. #JustAThought #COVID2019india.” Last month, Ojha bid adieu to international cricket. He ended up taking 144 international wickets for Team India.
