New Delhi: Faced with acute poverty and ailing, aged parents, Vadodara-resident Chandni Rajgaur was forced to put her dignity on the line and advertise her body on ‘sale’ on Facebook.
Talking to Zee Media, the former model and social worker said that she was forced to take such a desperate step due to the condition of her family. Chandni said, “My mother has been ailing from paralysis for long, and even my father, who provided for the family, recently met with an accident and has been bedridden.”
“I have no means to provide for them and there is no one I can ask for help,” she added.
Left with no means to provide for the ever-rising cost of treatment and food for her parents, Chandni said she was forced to make the dire move.
Even after putting herself on sale on the social networking website, Chandni says most of the people who have contacted so far have tried to exploit and not help her.
Responding to Chandni’s appeal, Lilaben Ankolia, the chairperson of Gujarat State Commission For Women, assured her and said, “The civil hospitals in Gujarat are well-equipped to provide medical care for her parents and Chandni can approach the Commission in case she needs any kind of help.”
