Andhra Pradesh: State Education Minister Botsa Satyanarayana made key comments on the ‘Amma Odi’ scheme. Speaking to media on Thursday, he clarified that the reduction in the number of beneficiaries of Amma Odi was untrue. Amma Odi decided that the selection of beneficiaries would be done on the basis of attendance percentage of students coming to government schools. He said the scheme would be applicable only if the children were sent to school regularly. Minister Botsa explained that the Amma Odi scheme is being applied to students who come to school regularly and have 75 per cent attendance. Former Chief Minister Jagan and the then Education Minister have made the same point many times. Now as the Minister of Education he himself is emphasizing the same thing. Amma Odi said she was not able to give the plan without going to school. Minister Botsa said the scheme was being implemented to encourage every single student to study without drop outs in schools and the guidelines on implementation were clearly stated when Amma Odi launched the scheme.
