Ashok Gehlot Urges Immediate Distribution of Funds for Rajiv Gandhi Scholarship Scheme

Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has urged that the state government immediately distribute the funds to the Rajiv Gandhi Scholarship Scheme recipients.

He had also addressed a letter to Chief Minister Bhajanlal Sharma about this issue.

Gehlot stated on X, "The Rajiv Gandhi Scholarship for Academic Excellence initiative, which was launched by our government with the goal of giving free education to 500 youngsters overseas, is also blocked in the current government. As a result, youngsters studying abroad are experiencing difficulties".

He said that despite being selected for the scheme, 346 students did not get scholarships.

Gehlot said on X, "The Rajiv Gandhi Scholarship for Academic Excellence scheme, started by our government with the aim of providing free education to 500 children abroad, is also stuck in the new government. Due to this, children studying abroad are facing problems".
He claimed that 346 students are not getting scholarships despite selection in the scheme.

Gehlot said the students who came to meet him gave him this information.

The Congress leader had written a letter to Chief Minister Sharma over the issue.

Now again the students and their families have come together to say that even after more than a week has passed, they have not received the scholarship.

 

"I would like to again request Chief Minister Bhajanlal ji that Rajiv Gandhi Scholarship should be given to the students without any delay because the students who have already reached there are facing a lot of problems. If the scholarship is not received even after the stipulated time, both the education and career of these children will be affected," the Congress leader said.
