Priyadarshi tweeted to Indigo explaining his demand, to which Indigo replied that they had sent a direct message to him on Twitter.

On June 10, a Twitter user Anupam Priyadarshi asked airline company Indigo to raise the 15 kg baggage limit so that he could carry free Covid-19 kits from Delhi to his village Bankatwa, 30 kilometers far from Motihari in East Champaran, Bihar. Priyadarshi said in another tweet that the airline company agreed to his demand. Later, the famous poet and former Aam Aadmi Party politician Kumar Vishwas responded by applauding Priyadarshi’s efforts and thanking the airline company.

Priyadarshi tweeted to Indigo explaining his demand, to which Indigo replied that they had sent a direct message to him on Twitter. About two hours later, Pridarshi tweeted mentioning Vishwas that the airliner agreed to his demand and now once again, Vishwas provided him with the free covid care kits, with which he was set to travel to his village. Responding to Priyadarshi’s tweet, Vishwas wrote that if one has courage in their heart, everything comes to their help. According to a report by Indian Express, Priyadarshi got 60 kits to carry with him from Vishwas’ office. The kits also included masks, sanitisers, and vaporizers.
