 JALANDHAR: City based lad Meedhansh Kumar Gupta on Monday received ‘Rashtriya Bal Puraskar’ from Punjab out of total 29 awardees across the nation during a virtual conference chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Meedhansh Kumar Gupta was selected among 29 children from across the country, under Innovation category and Social Service of Bal Shakti Puraskar for PMRBP-2022.

           

Ahead of Republic Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has conducted a virtual conference and interacted with the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar (PMRBP) awardees. Each awardee of PMRBP was given a medal, a cash prize of Rs. 1 Lac and digital certificate. The cash prize was transferred to the respective accounts of PMRBP 2022 winners.

           

The Prime Minister emphasised that such youngsters could bring positive and necessary transformation in the society, which is need of the hour.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Commissioner Ghanshaym Thori and Additional Deputy Commissioner (Urban Development) Aashika Jain also congratulated Meedhansh on his rare achievement. They also wished him great success in future too, which would also prove to be beneficial for the society.

While interacting with the Prime Minister from local District Administrative Complex here, Meedhansh said that he started to show his potential since the age of 5 years and his first achievement was recorded as a National Record into India Book of Records in the age of just 9 years as a Youngest Website Developer where he developed his first professional website 21stjune.com and launched on the International Yoga Day. 

  

It was also informed that during Corona Pandemic his contribution to society was also quite appreciable as well.  Within days before imposition of Janta Curfew on March 22, 2020, Meedhansh launched the portal www.coronafreeworld.com where he collected all the corona disease related information on one platform and also he started medical helpline service. Also Meedhansh participated in a state level corona prevention project named Mission Fateh which was launched by former CM Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh and developed the entire IT portal www.missionfateh.com along with various awareness videos as per the guidelines issued by Punjab Government. For this work he was given an appreciation certificate by the Punjab Government.

Pertinently, the Republic Day parade is also graced by these awardees. This year, due to Covid-19 conditions, the certificates were given digitally using Blockchain Technology. This technology is being used for the first time for giving certificates of awardees. In the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar selection criteria, the students were selected on the basis of their achievements in six categories including Innovation, Social Service, Scholastic, Sports, Art & Culture and Bravery.
