Uttar Pradesh, October 26: Showing the compassionate, agile side of his personality, which is reflected when he reaches out to the underprivileged, the needy, and the sick in order to assist them, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday gave financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh to a paralysis patient from the CM's Discretionary Fund.

The patient Dilip Shah, a resident of Chhote Kazipur Turha Chauraha, was handed over the cheque by CM Yogi at the Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur. CM Yogi Adityanath also assured Dilip Shah that his medical care will not be hindered by a lack of funding on the part of the government and that more money will be given if required.
