August 27th 2015, proved to be a very important day in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reign. His mission ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ (Save girl child, educate girl child) was implemented, where 1000 girls living in the slums and Jhuggi clusters in East Delhi were given admissions in EDMC schools. These girls would be provided free education etc. under this mission of PM Mr Modi. This was considered to be a milestone in the history of Indian education.
According to PTI reports, the girls who belonged to the under privileged sector were taken up by municipal schools with the help of East Delhi MP and BJP National Secretary Mr Mahesh Girri. The great efforts taken by EDMC teachers and office of East Delhi MP in convincing the families of these 1000 girls proved to be a great success. As per East Delhi Municipal Corporation, after many counselling the parents gave green signal to allow their daughters to study in EDMC school. It was also stated that these girls would enjoy the privilege of free education along with the the study materials etc.
Felicitation of these 1000 girls were carried out by Mr Mahesh Girri and others and admission letters were given to these girls.
