Bengaluru: Here is an example of how politicians who understand the plight of society can transform the common man’s life. Thanks to Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar, an 11-year-old girl, who was forced to sell flowers at the Kengeri railway station to supplement her family’s livelihood, is now able to study in a government-run residential school.
It all started on Monday evening, when Suresh Kumar, who arrived in Bengaluru from Mysuru, noticed the girl selling flowers at the Kengeri railway station. When he spoke to her, she told him that, although she wanted to go to school, her family forced her to sell flowers at the railway station for their livelihood.
Kumar, who is also the labour minister, immediately alerted the officials, who in-turn acted swiftly. The girl has now been admitted to the Morarji Desai Residential School in Ramanagar.
The minister’s action and his efforts have been lauded by the masses.
