nitish kumar: Nalanda Boy To Cm: Wantto Study In Private School | Patna News

PATNA: Chief minister Nitish Kumar remained shocked for a moment on Saturday when a 11-year-old boy urged him with folded hands to get him admitted to a private school as the quality of education in the government school in his village was “not up to the mark”.
Sonu Kumar, a student of Class VI, approached Nitish when he was listening to the grievances of co-villagers at his native village Kalyanbigha under Harnaut block in Nalanda district. The CM had gone to his village to pay floral tribute to his wife Manju Kumari Sinha on her 16th death anniversary.
While the CM was listening to the grievances of local people, Sonu approached him with folded hands and said, “Sir, please listen to me for one minute. Please support me in my studies. My father does not want to assist me in my studies. Please get me admitted to a private school because the quality of education in the government-run school where I study is not up to the mark.”
Nitish immediately asked one of the officers accompanying him to make necessary arrangements for the boy’s studies.
Sonu later told reporters that if the state government helps him in his studies, he too can become an IAS or an IPS officer. Sonu, a resident of Neema village, had gone to Kalyanbigha on Saturday after he came to know that the CM would reach there and interact with local people.
Sonu also told reporters that his father Ranvijay Yadav is a curd trader who spends all his earnings on consuming liquor. “He does not have enough money to secure my admission in a private school,” the boy said.
Sonu added he gives tuition to nearly 40 children of up to Class V to meet his own expenses.
