MP Sachin Tendulkar contributes for Police Training School project
Legendary cricketer and Rajya Sabha member Sachin Tendulkar has disbursed Rs 15 lakh from his allocated Members of Parliament Local Area Development (MPLAD) fund for a ‘Water Supply Project’ at the Police Training Centre in Sangli district of Maharashtra.
The news was confirmed by Sanjay Barkund, who is the head of Turchi Police Training Center.
“We had written to many celebrities to grant funds for this Water Supply project. However we did not get a favourable response from them. Mr. Tendulkar heard our plea and immediately recommended the project worth 15 Lakhs through his MPLAD Funds. We at the Turchi Police Training Centre are extremely grateful to Mr. Tendulkar,” Barkund told PTI.
