Mr. Pritesh Zatakiya, Founder of Ishna Production, announced that he has donated INR 5 Lacs to PM Cares Fund to help the nation in managing and combating coronavirus.
“Globally, we are living in a state of emergency. As an Indian, I feel it is my moral and national duty to come forward and help my nation in any way I can.”, says Mr. Pritesh Zatakiya
“I am glad to contribute to the PM fund because my contribution will help in preventing the spread of coronavirus in India. NRI people do not contribute to India by way of tax, and they should at least donate funds when our country really needs it. We should keep in mind that whenever there is an emergency out of India, the Indian government acts immediately to help the citizens without asking for any funds. They use the taxpayers’ money to rescue people who don’t pay any tax. So during such an emergency in India, all the NRIs should come forward and show their support.” says Mr. Zatakiya
