Raipur: CM Bhupesh Baghel in a virtual program today inaugurated the school admission festival in the schools of the state. Under this program, the Baghel administration has restarted 260 schools that were shut down for a decade and a half in four naxal-dominated areas- Sukma, Dantewada, Bijapur and Narayanpur.
Around 11,013 children have taken admission to these schools with the maximum of them located in the Bijapur district, 97 in Sukma district, 4 in Narayanpur and one in Dantewada. Under Shala Pravesh Utsav, 6,536 KG sections were also started in primary school premises of the state.
Congratulating the students and interacting with the parents at his residence during the inauguration, the Chief Minister said that for two years due to COVID-19, the education of children was affected, but we ensured that there is no hindrance in the education of the children under any circumstances, and their year should not be wasted. He said that we are starting the new academic session with a lot of hope that regular schools should be run this year.
As many as 260 schools were shut down around 15 years ago for reasons like Maoist violence. Officials are now directed to ensure the appointment of teachers in these schools. Residents of these areas have expressed joy in the decision taken by the Baghel govt.
