HYDERABAD: Union labour minister Bandaru Dattatreya said visually challenged children are in no way lesser than normal children and the government will make all efforts to provide education and employment to them.

The annual day celebrations of Devnar School for the Blind were held here on Saturday. The students enthralled the audience with impressive cultural performances. Later, prizes were distributed to the students who excelled in academics and extra curricular activities.

Speaking on the occasion, Dattatreya said the state government should allocate land to the school to upgrade it further and added that measures would be taken to provide special skill development courses for the visually challenged. 

Maharashtra governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao said there is a great need for institutes like Devnar School for Blind which serve visually challenged students.  “Awareness has to be created about the institute as more children can join the institute,” he added. Founder and chairman of Devnar Foundation A Saibaba Goud, VS Rao, director BITS Pilani, Hyderabad, were among others present on the occasion.
