100 new Sainik schools to help girls pursue career in armed forces: Rajnath Singh



A total of 100 new Sainik schools are being set up across India to provide opportunities to girl students to join the armed forces and contribute to national security, defence minister Rajnath Singh said while chairing a webinar on Sainik Schools. “The setting up of 100 new Sainik schools will provide an opportunity to girls to join the Armed Forces and contribute to national security.” He further said that the Government is committed to deliver quality education to the youth of this country. “Quality education is the fourth of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations. There are several other goals under ‘quality education’. It has been our strong political commitment to achieve these goals. Several schemes like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan are being run. Setting up of 100 new Sainik Schools is another important step in that direction,” he added.
