Education is the only way to have a developed community. So, it is very important to educate each and every child, said Mamballi Canara Bank branch manager S Basavaraju.
He was speaking at the ‘prathibha puraskar’ programme, organised by Dr Babu Jagajeevanram Association, held at Yallandur’s Biligiri First Grade College. He said that these days the backward community is not getting developed because of ineffective reservations. “The facilities that the government has announced are taken away by other communities. These days, children in rural places are not allowed to study because their parents want more money and so they send their children to cities to work as daily wage workers.
“Already, the government has spent crores of rupees in the education sector, and also is providing hostel facilities and various other facilities to draw students to schools. Children should make use of it,” he said.
Meanwhile, elected leaders from various sectors were honoured. Raju, Rajashekhar and Rachappa were felicitated.
Dr Babu Jagajeevanram Association president S Basavaraju, taluk president Kesthur Marappa, secretary Y S Nagaraju, Rajannaboodithittu, Raju, Suresh and others were present on the occasion.
