The Telangana Government led by Chief Minister Sri K. Chandrashekar Rao, which is already setting an example for the country in welfare measures, has launched another innovative scheme. CM Sri KCR took another historic decision towards the welfare of the students in the state.

As a Dasara festival gift, Hon’ble CM KCR has decided to launch the ”Chief Minister’s Breakfast Scheme” to the students studying in government primary and high schools (from classes 1 to 10) across the state from October 24. The main objective of the scheme is to provide nutritious food to the students.

By deciding to provide nutritious food to the students belonging to poor families, the government is taking steps towards increasing their focus on studies. The state government will implement the breakfast scheme from Dasara and this scheme reflects the humane approach of the Chief Minister. Many difficulties are faced by parents of students who are farm workers and leave in the morning to work. So, upon understanding and recognising these issues this scheme is being introduced. As per CM KCR’s decision, the state government has issued orders in this regard.

It may be recalled that CM Sri KCR has recently sent a team of IAS officers to study a scheme which is being successfully implemented in Tamil Nadu. A team of officers who studied the breakfast scheme for students, submitted a report to the government. It was brought to the attention of CM Sri KCR that in Tamil Nadu this scheme is being implemented only for students up to primary classes. However, Hon’ble CM, with a humanitarian perspective, decided to provide breakfast to high school students as well without sparing the cost. The government is going to spend Rs. 400 crore annually on this new scheme.
