Jaunpur, July 6 (UNI) Two freedom fighters have demanded public honour of Railway Minister Lalu Prasad for providing employment to the great grand daughters of the great leader Tatya Tope. In a letter to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, the great freedom fighters and former MLAs -- Nageshwar Dwivedi and Keshri Prasad Panday -- had urged that Mr Prasad should be honoured publicly for the good cause he had done.
''Mr Prasad had set-up a good example both in the world and society by providing jobs to the great grand daughters of Tatya Tope in railways,'' the duo said while talking to UNI here.
In a similar manner, attention should be paid towards the present generation of other freedom fighters, who were struggling for survival, the former MLAs noted. Help should be lended to the widow of writer Pt Shyam Narayan, who wrote 'Haldighati', as she was striving hard in Azamgarh district, they added.
