Mysuru, July 25:- “Government should provide laptops to the students of backward communities as well,” said former MLC K C Puttasiddashetty here on Monday.
“Government providing laptops to the students of SC/ ST communities is a welcome move. The initiative should be extended to the students of backward communities,” he told at a press meet.
“There are 102 castes in sub category 2. The students of these communities should be provided with the benefits. Sixty per cent of scholarship is not reaching the students due to communication gap,” he added. He also urged Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to extend free bus pass facility to poor students of all communities. (MR/KMR).
