The amount received under this fund would be spent in providing quality higher education to destitute women and students
Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu on Monday announced that he would contribute his first salary to the Chief Minister Sukhashray Sahayata Kosh as a part of his social responsibility.
It is a step towards humanity and serving those who are deprived of getting higher education. It would also give them a way to lead a respectable life of dignity, he said.
This relief fund was constituted on the first day of the new year by the state government with an aim to help needy students and destitute women to get their higher education.
The amount received under this fund would be spent in providing quality higher education to destitute women and students.
The Chief Minister said a specific amount would be given to these students and women which would help them in acquiring the higher education that they desire.
He said this fund would provide new dimensions to those who are capable but deprived of quality education due to financial constraints. Apart from this, the students would also get an opportunity to ensure their contribution to the progress and prosperity of the country and society at large.
Sukhu said this step is not compassion, but every person's right.
