‘State leaving no stone unturned in fostering education’
Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy on Wednesday said it was education that would remain with a person for life and that power and riches would come and go. Speaking at the Children’s Day celebrations organised at Ravindra Bharathi, marking the late Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s birth anniversary, Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy said the Congress government was leaving no stone unturned in fostering education and told the youngsters that taking a decision on what they wished to become in life was vital.
‘Decision is yours’
“We can show you the way and we can facilitate access to quality education, but the decision on what you wish to become when you grow up and to study accordingly has to be yours. Power and money will come today, go tomorrow and come back to you later also, but only education will remain with you life-long,” Mr. Reddy said.
Ministers Sunita Lakshma Reddy (Women Development & Child Welfare), J. Geeta Reddy (Major Industries) and Danam Nagender (Labour), Government Whip E. Anil (Balkonda MLA) and senior officials were present.
Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy later gave away the Bala Ratna, Bala Surya 2012 Awards and those for students who excelled in State-level competitions conducted under the Rajiv Vidya Mission in the State.
