Chief Minister and Gorakshpeethadhishwar Yogi Adityanath has given them the happiness of the whole world by fulfilling the vow of disabled scavenger Vivek and his wife Sandhya. When CM Yogi got Vivek’s seven-month-old daughter Annaprashan done in the temple premises on Monday morning and blessed him, Vivek’s eyes welled up with joy. Vivek says that it is a great fortune for us to have daughter’s Annaprashan in the hands of the Chief Minister.
Foot-disabled Vivek Sharma is an outsourcing sweeper in the Municipal Corporation. His duty is to do spraying work. He lives with his wife Sandhya and other family members in the employee accommodation built in the temple premises. they have two children. Three year old son and seven month old daughter. There was another child even before the daughter, but he left her untimely. According to Vivek, on the very day of his daughter’s birth, he had sought a vow from Guru Gorakhnath that the Annaprashan of the girl should be at the hands of Gorakshpeethadhishwar. And, his wish was fulfilled on Monday.
Chief Minister and Gorakshpeethadhishwar Yogi Adityanath was listening to the problems of the people in Janta Darshan on Monday morning. While meeting people one by one, his eyes fell on Divyang Vivek sitting on the chair with the baby girl in his lap. The CM recognizes him from serving in the temple premises. Ask what is the problem. Vivek folded his hands while taking the baby girl in his lap. When I told him about my wish, the Chief Minister started smiling.
Immediately lifting the daughter in his lap, he started caressing her. On the other hand, Vivek had brought kheer from home. The Chief Minister took out the nipple already attached in the girl’s mouth, fed kheer with his own hands, got her Annaprashan done and blessed her.
Vivek says that he was so engrossed in the happiness of his daughter getting Annaprashan at the hands of ‘Maharaj ji’ that he forgot to tell a wish. According to him, he also wants to name the daughter from Maharaj ji. Had they been told today, the renaming would have happened today itself.
