Later, talking to media, Mr. Satyarthi said he was impressed by the government’s Amma Vodi scheme that provides financial assistance to mothers who are poor and sending their children to schools. Every child in the state should have access to free education. The children should be free from all kinds of problems irrespective of their socio-economic background. There should not be any social discrimination, he said.
