So I suggested greeting the CM. Three days ago I got a call from a landline number in Chennai sating that it was from the CM’s office and the caller got some details of Srivanth and our family,” his father said.
While the officer who spoke to him assured to take the greetings to the CM’s notice, the boy’s father was clueless that the CM would be publicly thanking and greeting the lad.
