Dr Fauzia Khan started this petition to Shri Narendra Modi

To,
Hon. Narendra Modi Ji,
Prime Minister of India

I hope this letter finds you well. It is now well over a year since India has been grappling with the catastrophic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost every citizen has been affected in one way or another. Most people have witnessed the deaths of their near relatives and a greater number of people have been left unemployed due to the disastrous effect of the pandemic on our economy.

By way of this letter, I want to raise a pertinent issue that will impact the lives of our nation’s youngest generation. India’s death tally has significantly increased as the pandemic progressed, leaving thousands of children orphaned. While the Prime Minister’s Office has recently announced a scheme that would assist such orphaned children financially, this scheme would only apply once they are of 18 years of age.

I request you, to announce a reservation for all orphaned and destitute children that shall be applied vertically in every stage of their education, i.e. Pre-Primary Education to Post-Graduate Education.

Such a scheme shall consider all orphaned and destitute children as the situation will only be more grave, even after the Covid-19 pandemic has receded. This reservation scheme would not only empower such children, but also provide them with much needed academic support and guidance that educational institutions provide.

I sincerely hope the government accepts this recommendation and acts on it promptly.
