JAIPUR: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said the Rajasthan government had introduced several innovations to provide quality education. Gehlot inaugurated the Chief Minister's Bal Gopal Yojana and also distributed school uniforms under the Chief Minister's Free Uniform Distribution Scheme from his residence in the presence of Education Minister BD Kalla.

He said the state government was working with commitment to provide quality education and better health to the students, adding that both the schemes were important steps in this direction, according to an official statement. Now it is up to the teachers and parents to ensure that the uniforms are stitched soon and the students come to the school wearing their uniforms, he said.

Gehlot added that the education department played an important role in the operation and implementation of the schemes and asked the teachers to ensure that not a single student was deprived of their benefits. Under the Chief Minister's Bal Gopal Yojana, milk prepared from powdered milk will be made available every Tuesday and Friday to students of Classes 1 to 8 in government primary, upper primary schools, madrassas and special training centres benefiting from the mid-day meal programme.
