DEHRADUN: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat today said a special scheme will be launched to encourage girls from minority and backward communities in the state to take up higher education.

While addressing an event here, Rawat said that in order to encourage girls from minority and backward communities to continue their education after class VIII, his government will prepare a new scheme. He said efforts will be made to increase funds under the Maulana Azad Foundation and Skills training plan.
