Pondy CM's assurance to students
Puducherry, Jan 29: Puducherry Chief Minsiter N Rangasamy today categorically stated that any scheme meant for the students will not be stopped citing financial crisis in the Union Territory.
Speaking at a function at the Kadirgamam Government Higher Secondary School, near here after giving away prizes to the toppers in the SSLC and Plus two final examinations today, Mr Rangasamy said the Kadirgamam School was the one from which the maximum number of students were appearing for the SSLC examination among government schools and this year, 100 per cent pass was registered for SSLC and 95 per cent for plus two
The teachers of the school need to be congratulated for this, he added
He said there was a wrong belief among the public that the future of their wards would be secure if they happened to study in private schools
"The wealthy could sent their children even to foreign countries for education but why are the poor sending their children to private schools by availing loans and selling properties when all facilities are their in government schools here? he wondered
The Chief Minister also said the distribution of free cycles to the students, which was affected for the last two years, would resume shortly and those left out would also get the cycles
