Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh is first in the country in the implementation of Right to Education Act. Glory sagas of daughters would be included in school course from the next academic session. Chief Minister Mr. Shivraj Singh Chouhan has instructed to give cheques for cycles as Diwali gift to all the eligible children.

Mr. Chouhan was reviewing School Education Department here today. School Education Minister Smt. Archana Chitnis and Minister of State Mr. Nanabhau Mohod were also present at the meeting.

The meeting was informed that Madhya Pradesh has topped in the country by getting about 1.5 lakh children admitted to schools under Right to Education Act. The Chief Minister stressed the need to give maximum attention to children's education. He said that lessons glorifying daughters should be included in courses for Class 9 to 12. The courses should have lessons from Mr. Mandan Mishra's wife Mrs. Bharti up to Kalpana Chawla.

Madhya Pradesh will once again launch “Shala Chalo Abhiyan”. Mr. Chouhan said that the target of sending cent per cent children to schools should be achieved in the state. He instructed for constant monitoring for effective educational arrangements. He enquired about monitoring undertaken by School Education Department. Mr. Chouhan instructed departmental ministers and senior officers to undertake inspections. He said that he will himself undertake tours of various areas to review Education Department's activities.

The meeting was informed that this year 31 percent more children have been admitted to class 9. The work of distributing cycles could not be accomplished due to rise in the number of eligible children. The Chief Minister said that children should be given cycles with the start of academic session. He said that the department should provide cycles to eligible children as Diwali gift from any other of its funds. Rs. 20 crore budget as expected by the department will be arranged.

The meeting was informed that the Directorate of Public Instructions spent Rs. 77 crore 40 lakh against the target of Rs. 83 crore 61 lakh. A sum of Rs. 1992.64 crore has been spent by the Rajya Shiksha Kendra in first 9 months of the current fiscal, which is 58 per cent more than that of last year.

The meeting was informed that teaching work is being affected due to receipt of less funds from the Union government under various heads. Chief Minister Mr. Chouhan said that he will urge Union Human Resources Minister Mr. Kapil Sibbal to make funds available. He will also make an appeal to open schools in the state's cities on the basis of population.
