Kanyashree & Sabuj Sathi earn Supreme Court’s high praises
The Bengal Government’s flagship girl child empowerment scheme, Kanyashree, a brainchild of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, has now earned the praise of the Supreme Court too.
A bench of judges of the highest court expressed this opinion during a hearing. The Trinamool Congress counsel in court said that 34 lakh schoolgirls have benefitted from the scheme.
The bench was also full of praises for Sabuj Sathi, the scheme in which bicycles are presented to all school students, both girls and boys, for travelling to school, often from long distances.
