Decision Maker Response

Maneka Gandhi’s response

Oct 7, 2016 — I have received this petition from Change.org on behalf of the children of Uri martyrs wherein they have requested that their children should be provided free education. As of now the petition has been signed by over 70,000 people.

Our soldiers have made supreme sacrifices in their call of duty to protect our country. Taking care of the cost of educating their children will be a small part of our gratitude toward them.

I have written to the Minister for HRD requesting him to consider the petition favourably.

I would like you to remain updated about the work done by the Ministry. Please follow us on twitter @ministrywcd and @manekagandhibjp page. Please also follow us on our Facebook page facebook.com/manekagandhiofficial & facebook.com/ministrywcd.

Thank you,
Maneka Sanjay Gandhi
Union Minister For Women and Child Development
