Former CIL CMD Gopal Singh asks Mahamana Malaviya Mission to come forward to ensure quality education to BPL children

Ranchi, Jharkhand |  December  | 25, 2022 ::  Former CMD of Coal India Limited Gopal Singh today talking about ensuring admission of BPL children in quality schools.

Singh was addressing a function organized on the occasion of 161st birth anniversary of Pt Madan Mohan Malviya at Vidyapati Dalan in Harmu Housing Colony as a chief guest.

The programme was organized by the Ranchi unit of Mahamana Malaviya Mission.

Singh said if poor children are provided quality education it will be a work matching with the mission of Madan Mohan Malviya, who established Banaras Hindu University.

Suggesting a way to do so Singh said quality schools admit those children in their school who have some basic knowledge and if the poor children are provided some basic knowledge they can easily get admission in quality school under the 25 percent BPL quota.

Singh shared his personal experience in the field and explained how it is possible by small investment.

Those present on the occasion included former home secretary of Jharkhand government and a BHU alumnus N.N.Pande, RSS functionary Gurusharan Prasad besides several alumni of BHU.

RSS functionary Prasad welcomed the idea saying it will be a big contribution to the society. Earlier he explained how Malviya created possibility at the face of challenge in the field of education. He also expressed concern over no space to Malviya in newspapers on this birth anniversary unlike other leaders.

Prasad on the occasion talked about self employment saying it was not possible for everyone to get government jobs and before the arrival of Britishers cottage industries were so strong in the country that everyone used to get jobs and people were not worried about what rulers were doing.

Councilors of Ranchi Municipal Corporation Arun Kumar Jha and Arjun Ram also welcomed the idea. Jha said the work can be started by paving the path for admission of maid’s children in quality school. Ram said he always helps poor children get their birth certificate on time to ensure that they do not get deprived of admission due to lack of proper birth certificate.

Earlier Pandey remembered Malviya for his talent in different fields. He said Malviya apart from being a journalist, politician and teacher was a good lawyer. He let the audience know how Malviya saved 156 of 177 accused in the Chaura Chori case that arose during the freedom struggle. Editor of The Leader published from Allahabad.

General Secretary of Ranchi unit of Mahamana Malviya Mission Veerendra Narayan Singh made the audience aware of the work of Malviya saying despite being poor he established a university with the contribution of the society at the time when the country was not under British control. He on the occasion thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi who gave recognition to Malviya by conferring him Bharat Ratna posthumously with Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
