In a heartwarming gesture, Andhra Pradesh woman won countless hearts with her selfless gesture after she bought two bottles of cool drinks for the police officers who were working hard under the burning sun.
As per the reports, the woman identified as Lokamani works in a private school in East Godavari district and earns a meagre amount of Rs 3,500 per month. But that didn’t stop her from assisting cops who have been working tirelessly day and night in the ongoing coronavirus epidemic.
Lokamani became a social media sensation with a selfless gesture after a video of her giving two big bottles of soft drinks to the policemen spread like wildfire on social media.
Extremely touched and moved by her kindness, the police had returned the bottles and also gave her two bottles from their bags for her children. Before leaving, they had asked her to visit them occasionally since she had motivated them.
Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police by the name of Gautam Sawang, on Saturday, saluted the woman for her generous gesture.
Talking to her on a video call, Gautam Sawang said: “We were touched by the way you offered cold drinks to the police, showing motherly love. The same day, I told my officer to trace you, so we can thank you. I was particular that I thanked you personally.”
“It is for people like you that the government and the police work day and night. It is to ensure the health and safety of people like you that the police are on the streets working very hard. For the way you offered cold drinks to the policemen, we salute you. We all salute you,” he added.
