‘Bihar govt school students to get water bottles, backpacks’

Bihar education minister Brishen Patel on Thursday promised to provide water bottles and backpacks to all students in government schools in the state.

‘We are considering to provide water bottles and backpacks (to carry books) to the students of government schools so that they need not suffer from inferiority complex in comparison to the public school students who go to their schools in proper uniform,’ he said in the Legislative Assembly while replying to a debate on the education department’s budget to the tune of Rs 24,715 crore for 2014-15.
The minister, however, did not give any time frame for providing the backpacks and water bottles to the students of government schools.

Patel said his department was taking a slew of measures to improve quality of education from the primary stage and there was steady improvement in infrastructure and teachers.
