    This Kerala MLA Is Giving All The Right Reasons On How To Erase Illiteracy

    Popularly known as "Mayor Bro", VK Prasanth is now called "Mayor MLA" in Kerala

    At a time when political leaders are engrossed in changing names of cities, CPI(M) MLA VK Prasanth in Kerala has become an internet sensation for all the right reasons. He has been asking people to bring books instead of flowers when they come to meet him.

    Reportedly, on November 14th, 2019 he was approached by local government schools to seek his help to set up libraries for their students. Since then, he has been requesting everyone in his constituency, Vattiyoorkavu to donate books to him through his Facebook.

    Popularly known as “Mayor Bro” after his active participation in flood relief activities in August 2018. Now he is called the “Mayor MLA.”

    The MLA also shared a video where it is seen that people are generously donating books to him. He later announced that he had received 3,500 books which he would be handing over to the government schools in his constituency.

    This gesture by MLA Prasanth is indeed appreciative and we need more leaders like him to make India a 100 percent literate country one day.
