District Collector A.Md. Imtiaz met the mathematics teacher-turned-street vendor T. Venkateswara Rao at BRTS Road in the city a day after The Hindu published a report highlighting the plight of Mr. Rao.

Mr. Imtiaz, along with officials, on Monday reached out to Mr. Rao who was selling footwear on BRTS Road near Padavalarevu as part of his new daily routine.

According to a release, Mr. Imtiaz offered a contract job and a loan facility to set up a better business and asked Mr. Rao to choose one of it. Mr. Rao will meet Mr. Imtiaz at his office on Tuesday for further proceedings.

Mr. Rao lost job as a part-time teacher due to COVID pandemic and resorted to selling footwear to make ends meet.
