“I want to give you big thanks for taking the responsibility that should have been of the state,” PM Oli said, “Now there won’t be a situation compelling a child not to obtain education in English medium in lack of money.”
Stating that the Samata Foundation of Education has made Nepal known in the world, he said,” The world now knows that opportunity for affordable and quality education is available in Nepal. I congratulate you for this.”
On the occasion, the Prime Minister clarified that no children of the school-going age would be outside of school from the coming academic session.
