Anupam Kher on Wednesday posted a government document signed by his wife, ailing actress-politician Kirron Kher, for the allocation of Rs. 1 crore from MPLADS (Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme) to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, for the purchase of ventilators for Covid patients.
“Dearest @kirronkhermp ! In this hour of need your allocation of Rs. One Crore from MPLADS to the PGI Chandigarh towards the immediate purchase of ventilators for COVID-19 patients will really help,” Anupam Kher wrote in his Instagram post.
While many hailed the decision, a section of social media was not happy that Kher had used the word “donating” instead of “allocating”.
