He adds, “As soon I noticed this news on social media, we trace her family & asked them to bring her Imphal. Spoke to her family that I will personally take care of her education till she graduates.”

It may be mentioned that, Education plays a significant and remedial role in balancing the socio-economic fabric of the Country, according to Ministry of Education, which further underlines “Since citizens of India are its most valuable resource, our billion-strong nation needs the nurture and care in the form of basic education to achieve a better quality of life.”

It also adds, “This warrants an all-round development of our citizens, which can be achieved by building strong foundations in education.
