By on April 3, 2014

Motivated by the ideologies of the Aam Aadmi Party, a 9-year-old girl donated her piggybank carrying `3,700 to party chief Arvind Kejriwal.

Aashi Singh has been all praise for Arvind Kejriwal, who wants to make India a corruption-free country.

The young girl has been adding money to her piggybank since the age of four. “Whatever she received from her grandparents, uncles and aunts as a token of love, she used to put it in her piggybank. It was very close to her heart,” informed the girl’s mother Dolly Singh.

Her parents said that Aashi attended rallies of Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal in 2012.

She was seven-years-old when she first attended a rally. Her parents said Aashi was motivated by the idea of better future of the corruption-free country.

Father Ranjit Singh, a serviceman said, “Aashi used to accompany us to rallies of Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal. Seeing people distribute free water and food at these rallies, she was also motivated to make a little contribution to the cause.”


Aashi Singh, a student of Class 5 who gave away her collection to Mr Kejriwal, said, “I would be more than happy, if my little contribution could make any difference to Arvind uncle’s movement for a better tomorrow.”
Her father said: “When she came up to us that she wanted to donate her savings, we were surprised at the first place, but then appreciated her move,” said Mr Singh.
