Telangana Mulls Over Residential Schools for Orphans

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao observed that there was a need to build integrated residential schools for orphan children who wish to study above Class X.

He said such school would first come up in Yadagirigutta and an invitation would be extended to President Pranab Mukherjee to inaugurate the same.

In a review meeting held here on Tuesday along with ministers KT Rama Rao, Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, C Lakshma Reddy, the chief minister asked the ministers and officials to work out a policy to address the needs of orphan children.

Stating that his government is committed to the cause of orphans, he narrated an incident which he said had left a heavy burden in his heart.

The chief minister said that he was shocked to find two young girls, who gave instant answers to tricky mathematics problems, standing before him with folded hands seeking help at a programme in Gajwel.

“I was shocked to see those brilliant girls tell me that they are orphans and sought help. It was then I decided that Telangana government will be the father and the mother of these hapless children,” the chief minister said.
