All they need is love, kindness and support and he is sending you all, his love and strength.

Along with the tweet, Vijay Deverakonda also attached a video wherein he spoke in detail about the two major announcements. In the video, Deverakonda said that in July 2019, he started a secret project with an aim to employ one lakh people. He said since many people lent him their helping hands when he needed it, through this initiative, he wants to help those in need of helping hands.

Elaborating on the secret project, Deverakonda said he hired 50 people for this passionate project in August 2019. The first goal was to employ 50 young boys and girls. In September 2019, via an organization called TDF (The Deverakonda Foundation), 650 young boys and girls from rural areas sent their profiles seeking employment. Vijay added that by October 2019, they shortlisted 120 from which 50 were handpicked and were trained to their best potential.
