Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh received a huge outpouring of gratitude from Kashmiris on Sunday after he came to the rescue of a student from Bandipora, who was finding it difficult to get treatment at PGIMER.

The twitterati reacted by heaping praise on the CM, calling him the unsung hero of Kashmir.

It was on Sunday morning that Nasir Khuehami, spokesperson of the J&K Students Association, a body working for Kashmiris outside the valley, tweeted his gratitude to the CM and his media adviser Raveen Thukral. He tweeted, “A saviour is not less than the messiah. I express sincere thanks to Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Ji for his timely intervention and support in the matter of Kashmiri student who is suffering from colon cancer. He is the real hero.We salute your endeavour and your stand is an eye-opener for all those claiming themselves as champions of social activism without action.’’

Responding to Khuehami’s Tweet, Capt Amarinder wrote, “I see all Kashmiri students as part of our family and want all of you to look at Punjab as your second home. I and my government are always there for you.’’

Khuehami said he contacted the CM through his media adviser Raveen Thukral on Saturday after Mujeeb Ahmed, a student of City College, Jalandhar, who is suffering from colon cancer, wasn’t attended to at PGIMER, Chandigarh.
