MP to reserve 25 seats in private schools for poor children

Saturday February 19, 2011 09:22:52 PM, Pervez Bari, ummid.com

Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Antodaya Mela will be organised every year in order to provide benefits of public welfare schemes to the poor people. Half of the budget of State Government will be spent only on poor people.

Chouhan was addressing an Antodaya Mela organised at Indore today. A total of Rs. 60 crore under various schemes was distributed among one lakh 7 thousand beneficiaries.

He further said that the boys would also be provided bicycles from next year. Around 25 per cent seats will be reserved for the children of poor families in private schools. The State Government will defray their fees. The poor children who secure more than 80 per cent marks will be provided an assistance amount of Rs. 500 per month. The girls from first standard to 12th standard are being provided textbooks and uniforms free of cost by the State Government.

Chouhan said that the State Government was also paying attention to generate job opportunities to the youths with education. A skill development mission has already been initiated for the youths. The 90 per cent jobs will be ensured to the local people in the industries being set up in Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor. Skill development centre will be opened at every development block where youths undergo training, he added.

The Chief Minister described Antodaya Mela as 'Mahayagna' of service. One can get blessings of God by lending service to poverty stricken people. Those who are on breadline and backward will be on top priority of State Government. Through Antodaya Mela, people are being benefited in the state. Poor families of urban and rural areas are being provided benefits of schemes like scholarship, medical treatment and other benefits while registering their names. The State Government has allocated Rs. 900 crore to extend financial helps to the frost-affected farmers in the state, he revealed.
