“We cannot progress without education. All the countries, which have progressed economically, first ensured strengthening of educational system,” says Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.
After the very popular laptop distribution in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav has come up with another great initiative to encourage students to go in for higher education. After completely waiving off tuition fee and tripling the scholarship amount, he has launched a bus service exclusively for college going students.
The young CM has given ‘education’ a lot of importance in his tenure. Samajwadi Government has slowly tried to eradicate all the reasons which might hamper someone’s will to study. Hence, this initiative of providing free transport to college going students will definitely boost the number of students attending classes and completing their studies. Akhilesh Yadav has directed colleges in Lucknow and Allahabad to start with this service immediately, in the first phase. The students will only need to flash their college identity cards to avail the service.
This initiative has come in after the CM’s progressive hi-tech bus stop project. This means, that the buses and bus stops will be completely safe for students and they might even get refreshments for their way to college.
Education is important for a state to progress and Social Samjwadi is glad to see the UPCM propagating this.
