After adding nutritious fruits to the mid day meals, Akhilesh Yadav, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh has come up with another great initiative for school going children. Water is one of the most basic needs of the people and everyone is entitled to readily available clean potable water. So now, all the schools in the state will be fitted with 1.1 kW Photo Voltaic RO purifiers.

This scheme has been initiated by the chief minister as a step towards ensuring similar facilities in government school as that of private institutes. The instructions have been circulated to all school administrators. Having clean drinking water in vicinity, will ensure that vulnerable school going children are not affected by water borne diseases.

Another notable step by Akhilesh Yadav is that he has directed the school authorities to give knowledge, information, and benefits related to personal hygiene, to all the children. For instance, before the mid day meals, it is mandatory for each student to wash their hands. In fact, a log book is maintained for the same.

This initiative has been taken up by the Akhilesh Yadav-led government to make the future of Uttar Pradesh mentally, physically, and emotionally strong.
