Khammam: Mana Ooru Mana Badi- Mana Basti Mana Badi presented by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was to transform the public education system in Telangana, Transport Minister Puvvada Ajay Kumar has said.
The program amply demonstrates how a state could achieve development in all areas if it were led by a chief minister who fully understood the needs of the people. Chandrashekhar Rao has pledged to give a boost to the education and health sectors in the state, he noted.
The minister launched development works worth Rs. 8.91 lakh at a senior primary school at Rankya thanda in Raghunathpalem mandal and Rs 13.30 lakhs worth of works at Rotary Nagar Government Primary School in Khammam Saturday covering 12 program components.
Ajay Kumar called on villagers, school management committees, alumni associations and NRIs to become partners and make collective efforts to make the schools in the villages ideal schools to fulfill the Chief Minister’s dream to develop public schools on an equal footing with business schools.
The Mana Ooru Mana Badi scheme was being implemented with an estimated cost of Rs 7,280 crore for the development of around 26,000 schools in the state in three phases. The program heralds a new era in the public education system, he said.
