Letter to CM For Pre-Matric Scholarship
Our dearest Dr Shiirhozelie Liezietsu honorable Chief minister of Nagaland. I on behalf of the students and parents would like to state these few and important words that people in Nagaland know that you are a prominent educationist and one of the most lovers of the students. It is already in your knowledge that the Central government has been giving Pre-matric Scholarship to the students of class 1-10 since seven eight years ago and till now it is continually given the same to the students. In other states of India every year students used to get a good and handsome amount of this scholarship, whereas if we compare with the other states, Nagaland state education department had been giving little amount of money only to the applying students in last past years.
Last academic year that was 2016-17 students who were in class 7- 10 got Rs. 5,700/- (Five thousand seven hundred) only and students who were in class 1- 6 got Rs. 1000/- (one thousand) only.
To get this scholarship parents used to spend about Rs.1000/- or more for per student in order to obtain require documents. However, when students got scholarship lower sections (classes 1-6) used to get discouraged for less amount they got and more amount they spent. Students of Nagaland should get the amount what the other states’ students are getting.
Therefore honorable chief minister sir, all the parents and students who are applying the said scholarship in this current year, will be extremely happy if you could possibly check and speak for children (students) whom you love so much and also do justice to them. For this pre-matric scholarship scheme is very helpful for poor students and their parents. Right thinking persons would speak more on this even in days ahead. Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless. Speak for them and be a righteous judge. Protect the rights of the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9). Students and parents would so grateful to you sir for your kind intervention for the benefit of pitiful students. As Christian state (Nagaland) corruption should not get involved in this centrally sponsoring scholarship.
