Amaravathi:Nara Lokesh, Minister for Education, IT, and Electronics, established a comprehensive plan to reform the academic sector even before assuming office. His focus on addressing issues faced by underprivileged students began with a meeting at his residence on June 15, where he convened senior Education Department officials.

During the meeting, Lokesh was informed that government college Intermediate students lacked textbooks. Expressing immediate concern, he ordered the prompt supply of textbooks, notebooks, and other essential materials, regardless of the Rs 33 crore expenditure. Within three days, necessary government orders were issued, and steps to provide these materials commenced urgently.

Lokesh’s Yuva Galam pada yatra exposed the devastating impact of drug abuse on youth, particularly in educational institutions. In response, he is forming a joint action committee to combat campus drug abuse. He also directed officials to ensure that government schools receive all basic amenities within a year and mandated that teachers focus solely on teaching to enhance educational quality.

Additionally, Lokesh is revamping the mid-day meal scheme to provide quality food and plans a systemic overhaul of state universities to meet global standards. He aims to fill vacant professor posts and reopen schools closed during the YSRCP rule. Measures are also underway to clear pending dues under Vidya Deevena and Vasanthi Deevena, ensuring students receive their certificates.

Believing in proactive leadership, Lokesh initiated these reforms before taking office. His vision contrasts sharply with previous destructive policies, emphasizing his commitment to the welfare and development of the academic sector.
