“The Chief Minister won laurels from across the country for his schemes, Amma Vodi, Vidya Deevena, and Vasathi Deevena,” the Speaker said.

He said under Jagananna Vidya Kanuka, three pairs of uniforms, a pair of shoes, two pairs of socks, textbooks and notebooks, and a school bag were included as part of the school kits, which benefited over 40 lakh students in the state. Similarly, an amount of '15,000 was being given to mothers of students under Amma Vodi, and as a part of Jagananna Gorumudda, Ragi was being given to students to increase nutritional levels. Several local-level leaders were present at the gathering.
