Yash said, “After 1972, the state is facing one of the worst droughts. There is water requirement in at least 4,000 villages. But I voluntarily picked a handful.”
“I don’t find it necessary to mention the cost. My only intention is to help people and I hope it will be an inspiration for many, who can come forward and work for the cause. This is a platform I have created for my trust, which I want to expand further. If anybody is keen to be a part of this, we are ready to guide them.”
