a�?Sisters For Changea�? Campaign To a�?Helmeta�? Brothers
Hyderabad: Kalvakuntla Kavitha, MP and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao, has come up with a unique campaign on the occasion of impending Rakhi Festival, wherein sisters tie a sacred threat around the wrists of their brothers seeking their long life, so that they can continue to protect their siblings.
Under the a�?Sisters For Changea�? campaign, the MP has appealed to every sister to not only tie the Rakhi around her brother/sa�� wrist, but also put on their head helmet/s. Kavitha will take the lead and tie a rakhi, place a helmet on her brothera��s head, and also present him a bike.
Bike is because her brother does not have a two-wheeler. Her brother is K Taraka Rama Rao, who is also an IT Minister in the KCR Government. The brand of the bike is not yet known!
The MPa��s endeavour is to create safety awareness among brothers while driving on the roads.
This is how she explained her rationale: a�?Around 400 youngsters are dying in road accidents every day in the country for not wearing a helmet. This news made me think. So, I launched a�?Sisters For Changea�? programme on the occasion of my brothera��s birthday.a�?
a�?I request all sisters to present a helmet to their brothers along with the Rakhi. Brother protects us… Helmet protects brothera�?
Kavitha revealed that there is already a great response to the programme. She is even launching a national-level campaign for the same.
Responding to a question by a journalist, the MP maintained, a�?My brother doesna��t have a bike. So, I will present a bike along with the helmet. Not only that, I will ask him to wear the seat belt while travelling in the car.a�?
