Agri Minister Sanjeev Balyan Writes To VCs: ‘My Niece Wants Funding, Meet Her’
Junior agriculture minister Sanjeev Balyan’s office has made a peculiar request to venture capitalist companies through a letter requesting VCs to look into his niece’s startup.
The email was sent to VCs on Tuesday afternoon by the minister’s personal Assistant himself.
Apparently, Balyan’s niece wants to launch an app named “A Start-up Company”, and is looking for fresh funding from venture capital firms. Take a look at the entire letter below:
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am desired to seek an appointment for Ms. Monika Balyan (Niece of Hon’ble MOS (Agriculture & Farmers Welfare), Government of India) for discussing the issue of raising funds with concerned officer of your estemeed company in order to enable her to launch an App “Ä Start-up Company”.
I shall be grateful if you could spare sometime for the said appointment from your busy schedule.
A date and time of the meeting may kindly be sent by revert mail.
With best regards,
