Sonia Gandhi writes to PM, seeks free education for kids orphaned by Covid




The Congress chief pointed out that Navodaya Vidyalayas across the country can be used to help such children
Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Thursday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide free education to children, who have lost either both or the earning parents to Covid-19. She suggested central Navodaya Vidyalayas across the country for the purpose.

In a letter to Modi, Gandhi said the nation owes it to such children to give them “hope for a robust future”. Gandhi’s letter comes days after Congress leader G S Bali from Himachal Pradesh announced the party will adopt all the children orphaned by the pandemic in the state’s Kangra district.
Gandhi also recalled how the creation of Navodaya Vidyalayas across the country was her husband and late former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s most significant legacy. It was his dream to make high-quality modern education accessible and affordable to talented children predominantly from rural areas, she said.

Gandhi said as India battles the second Covid-19 wave, thousands of children have lost both their parents and have no one to look after them. She added others are in a situation where a single surviving parent is unable to take care of them financially and psychologically.
