CM Baghel seeks 100% literacy in Chhattisgarh

Raipur: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Sunday urged the people to contribute their bit to achieve 100 per cent literacy rate in the state.

Addressing the people of the state through his second episode of 'Lakvaani' programme, Baghel said the Chief Minister's Urban Functional Literacy Programe would be promoted among people between the ages of 14 and 60 years and hoped that this would play a major in empowering citizens.

Praising the role of the teaching community in building the future of the new generation, CM Baghel said under the Right to Education, education up to 12th standard has been made free in the state.

Talking about his government's decision to provide 27 per cent reservation to OBC, 13 per cent to Scheduled Caste, 32 per cent to Scheduled Tribe and 10 per cent to Economically Weaker families, Baghel said that this 82 per cent reservation in Chhattisgarh will prove to be an important step towards social justice.

The second episode of Lokvaani, the Baghel's monthly radio programme, aired from all centres of Aakashwani, FM channels and regional news channels of the state simultaneously from 10.30am to 10.55am. Baghel started this monthly radio programme to share his views with the people of the state and learn about their sentiments, queries and suggestions.
