The chief minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar took to Twitter and congratulated Kartikeya on his achievement. His tweet closely translates to, "After sports, studies and arts, now my children are making the name of Haryana bright all over the world in technology. Kartikeya, a 12-year-old student from Jhajjar, has created a Guinness World Record for being the youngest app developer by developing a learning app. Congratulations and best wishes to his entire family."

Take a look:

As reported by Times Now, Kartikeys's interest in app development happened by accident. During the pandemic, his father bought him a phone worth Rs 10,000 for his online classes. However, the phone began to develop issues and to repair his phone he started using YouTube. “The mobile phone had many issues as it used to hang during the coding process. With the help of YouTube, I fixed the phone and continued with my studies," Kartikeya told Money Control. 

He added, "I made three apps -- the first was related to General Knowledge named Lucent GK online. The second was Ram Kartik Learning Centre that teaches coding and graphic designing and the third was Shri Ram Kartik Digital Education. Now, these apps are offering free training to over 45,000 students."
