Licypriya wrote [translation]: “Even though rich people can’t, we will definitely buy the Rs 7 Lakhs worth thermal drone in couple of days. We have received report that entering war in the evening without thermal drone has brought problems. Entering war blindly increases casualties. Thermal scanning the areas beforehand will be highly beneficial’. ‘As per public request, those willing may donate/contribute to my PayTM/ PhonePay/ GPay 6009059349.”

“Lets contribute whatever we can, there’s no other means”
