Telugu Desam Party MP from Narasaraopet Rayapati Sambasiva Rao’s offer to donate his kidney to Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj is said to be nothing more than a publicity stunt.
Rayapati wrote a letter to Sushma on Friday stating that he was extremely pained to know that she was suffering from renal failure and that she desperately looking for a kidney donor.
“I shall be very grateful if you kindly accept my offer for donation of my kidney to you for transplant,” he said in the letter.
However, a careful observation of the letter revealed that there was a rider in the offer. The rider is: “If my kidney is suitable to you.”
It clearly shows Rayapati had made the offer just like that without finding out whether his kidney would be suitable to Sushma or not.
First of all, his blood group should match that of Sushma. Secondly, even if it matches with her, he should be medically and physically fit to donate his kidney and that he should not have any other ailments.
Rayapati is already 73 years old. And he has his own age-related medical problems. Moreover, he is not sure whether his blood group will match that of Sushma. It clearly shows he has made the offer only for the sake of publicity.
In any case, it remains to be seen whether he will reveal all his medical reports to the doctors, so that they can try out his offer!
