Former Congress President and MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi has attended a program virtually to distribute 350 smart TVs to children in his constituency. The children were deprived of their studies due to non availability of resources as education has gone online in Covid times.
At a time when politics is stooping low day in and out with leaders switching sides, Rahul Gandhi has not only attacked the government on the forefront over numerous issues including Corona, migrants problem and China intrusion, he is also reaching out to help the people of his constituency by providing every support they need.
Kerala government is running ‘First Bell’ – virtual classes for school students of the state, through the KITE Victers channel and other online mechanisms, when the schools are closed amid COVID19 pandemic. This 350 smart televisions is a part of the third phase of the contribution made by the congress leader in his constituency to provide adequate infrastructure to students of his constituency for the online classes.
Earlier, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had written to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan drawing his attention to the plight of a large number of tribal students in Wayanad unable to benefit from “First Bell” initiative by the state government due to lack of access to electronic devices or internet.
Rahul Gandhi had also written a letter to the Chief Minister of Kerela expressing that the success of the digital teaching initiative depends upon the students’ access to digital infrastructures like computers, smartphones, cable television and reliable internet connections. He had also expressed his support in providing assistance towards procurement of these devices.
