CONGRESS PRESIDENT Sonia Gandhi has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide free education at the Navodaya Vidyalayas to the children whose parents have died of Covid-19.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, she said children who have lost one or both parents to the pandemic are left with the trauma of loss and no support towards a stable education or future.

“Amidst the devastation caused by the pandemic and the heart-wrenching tragedies being faced by affected families, news of young children losing one or both parents to Covid-19 are the most poignant. These children are left with the trauma of loss and no support towards a stable education or future,” she said.

Asking the Prime Minister to consider providing free education at the Navodaya Vidhyalayas to children who have lost either both parents or an earning parent on account of the Covid-19 pandemic, she said, “I feel that as a nation, we owe it to them to give them hope for a robust future after the unimaginable tragedy that has befallen them.”
