He has given a donation of rupees one crore for the project. Muhammad Y Safeerulla, district collector, received the cash draft from M.A Nishad, director, Lulu group. The Uttupura project was implemented by P. Rajeev while he was the Member of Parliament. It costs an amount of rupees fifty thousand each day. It was P. Rajeev, district secretary of CPM, who requested help from M.A Yousuf Ali, chairman of Lulu group, during the Haritham Jeevanam music night, a music program conducted by Indian Medical Association (IMA) to raise fund for Uttupura. This is the first time a person is donating such a huge amount for the Project.

On delivering the keynote address on the occasion, P. Rajiv said that, “what matters is the smooth running of the project rather than just implementing the project. GH is a model to the country.
