He said the state government was giving importance to empowering women, and especially the girl child.

The state has announced to give Rs 2 per day for a female student who goes to school and as per this scheme, every girl studying from the 1st to the 10th standards will get `2 for every day that she attends school. “In this way we will make learning students into earning students.
