Bhopal, Feb.23 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has announced free education for Scheduled Caste students in government colleges including, engineering and medical institutions from the next session.
“It is our intention that all the children from Madhya Pradesh should study. The BJP-led Centre has announced various schemes for this. Specially the SC students, who are capable but in the lack of funds, they are unable to continue with their studies,” Chouhan told ANI on Tuesday.
“That is why we have decided all SC students will get free education in all government schools and colleges and the state government would pay on their behalf,” he added.
He announced the decision at a function in Maihar town on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Sant Ravidas yesterday.
The state government in its endeavor to promote education is also providing new bicycles to SC girl students, who are securing admission in class 11. (ANI)
