Human Resources and Development Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the Central Government may soon ask the government schools to promote “Sabko Shiksha, Achchi Shiksha”.
The minister was at Mandvi taluka of Surat to attend a Sabka Saath Sabka Vikaas event, organised by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).
While addressing the people at the event, Javadekar said, “Yesterday (Wednesday), I saw a Bollywood movie, at the end of which the parents put their child in a government school. We are also planning to open Navoday Vidyalaya and Central schools. In the last three years we have given permission to 124 central schools across the country and in coming days, we will increase the numbers.”
He said, “We have come to you in just three years and not five years. This is because we have learnt that your hopes have been fulfilled. After two years we will come again and you will give us vote with full faith,” said the minister.
He also revealed that from 2014 around six crore LPG connections were given whereas only 14 crore were allotted earlier. “Out of them two crore are women beneficiaries under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana,” added Javadekar.
