Odisha: President Murmu advises parents to educate their children

Bhubaneswar, Nov 20 (UNI) Stating that Education is the key to economic and social well-being, President Droupadi Murmu on Monday advised parents to educate their children.
Speaking after inaugurating Eklavya Model Residential School (EMRS) at Kuliana of Mayurbhanj district in Odisha, the President said, 'during her childhood there was no school near her home, therefore, she had to go away from home for study.
She said many children were deprived of education at that time due to non-availability of a nearby school which is not the case today.'
Murmu expressed confidence that with the opening of the EMRS, local children will now have more opportunity for education.
Addressing the children, the President said she also comes from a humble background like them. She got the opportunity to serve the citizens, because of her education.
Murmu said that education can make them successful. Being an educated person, they can contribute to the progress of the country and society along with their own development.
The President said She was happy to note that more than 700 EMRS are being established across the country for education of tribal children.
She said that in these schools more than 3.5 lakh tribal students across India will be able to get quality education and be able to contribute to the development of society and nation.
