On the day of CRPF Valour Day a web portal by the name of “BharatKeVeer” where people can make donations up to 15 Lakh for the families of CAPFs and martyred jawans was launched at Vigyan Bhawan.

Akshay Kumar has recently donated Rs 1.09 crore to 11 families of CRPF martyrs who were killed in a Naxal ambush in Sukma.

Home minister Rajnath Singh and home secretary Rajiv Mehrishi thanked Akshay Kumar for taking this initiative.

"Akshay Kumar is always in action while doing social work. It would not be wrong if I call him today 'Action Kumar'. He is a hero for so many people, but for him, Army and CAPF jawans are the real heroes," said Singh, as the crowd burst into huge applause for the Bollywood actor.

"Usually, the compensation amount when somebody was martyred while fighting for the nation varied from Rs 40 lakh to Rs 50 lakh. We want to make sure that they get Rs one crore. There was some gap of compensation in some states. But we have told states that we (central government) will fill that gap," Singh said.
