Bengaluru: “I will pay for the education of those children who lost both parents or a surviving parent, legal guardian or adoptive parents due to Covid-19 in Padmanabhanagar Assembly constituency,” stated Minister R Ashoka.

He was speaking during a program held to distribute ration kits to poor families in the Padmanabhanagar Assembly constituency on Monday, June 14.

Ashoka said, “Children who lost both parents due to Covid-19 are not orphans. I am there to support them. I will also pay for their education.”

He further said, “Due to COVID-19, many families are in trouble. Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Monday announced Rs one lakh relief to each of the families under Below Poverty Line (BPL) which lost an earning or adult member due to COVID-19. ”

“The decision will benefit about 25,000 to 30,000 such families incurring an expenditure of Rs 250 crore to Rs 300 crore to the state exchequer,” he added.
