Heartwarming story: Son becomes Minister but parents choose to continue as farm labourers
The ascent of their son in politics has not stopped a couple from working in the fields in Tamil Nadu to earn a livelihood. L Murugan was recently made the Minister of State for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, and Information Broadcasting.
Murugan was the head of the Tamil Nadu BJP before becoming a Union Minister. His parents live in a small house. They were reportedly working in a field when they heard Murugan was going to be a minister.
The minister's father told a reporter that they did nothing to help their son's professional chances, even though they were proud of him. The parents said that they paid for their son's education with their hard-earned money.
