Mysuru: Shaktidhama will soon get a girls school towards empowering women’s education.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai laid foundation stone for the school at Shakthidhama campus on Thursday.

In the last 2.5 decades, Shaktidhama has given shelter and moral support to nearly 4,000 destitute women. It is stepping into another level to provide education at the upcoming Shakthidhama Vidyashala for classes 1 to 8.

Bommai said “the thought of uplift of deprived women is a great thinking and it was conceptualised by former IPS officer Kempaiah and another mother hearted thespian actor Dr Rajkumar and Parvathamma Rajkumar”.

Whenever we get opportunity we all should serve the society. Infosys Foundation and Sudha Murty have contributed a lot in and outside the state. All must stand with destitute children who aren’t orphans, but the children of God.

After Bengaluru, Mysuru is a fast growing city in South and Hubballi-Dharwad in North. We are going to announce scheme for senior citizens, particularly for the treatment of eyes and ear, dialysis and chemotherapy centers. The relief for acid survivors has been increased from Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,000. It has been also announced in the budget to open a Cancer Hospital in Mysuru, added Bommai.

Humanitarian approach to the people’s sufferings is our motto, said Bommai.

After knowing about Shakthidhama from Shivarajkumar we decided to announce Rs five crore special grants to Shakthidhama Vidyashala in the budget, said Bommai.

Shivarajkumar lauded Infosys Foundation and Sudha Murty for their generous contribution which is immense. We are thankful to their whole team, he said.

“Whenever I was shooting in Mysuru, I came here and connected with the children here. We see Appu (Puneeth  Rajkumar) in the children’s face. We are always with the children”, Shivarajkumar added.

Geetha Shivarajkumar said “I am working under the guidance of Kemapaiah. All the trustees are supportive and the chief minister was also encouraging for the cause of Shaktidhama”.
