GUNTUR:It has been decided to shift the inmates from the welfare hostels to the residential schools and colleges that are going to be built soon, social welfare minister Ravela Kishore Babu has said.

“Nearly one lakh students from all the 1,440 welfare hostels in the state will be shifted to new residential schools and colleges in a phased manner once the buildings are completed,” he said.

After inspecting the social welfare boys hostel at Ravindra Nagar here on Sunday, the minister told reporters that quality of education and facilities would be better in the new structures being built with upgraded infrastructure.

Seeing the dilapidated condition of the Ravindra Nagar hostel, Kishore Babu said the students of 5, 6 and 7th classes would be shifted to the residential school being constructed at Adavitakkellapadu while the remaining students would be sent to the B.Ed college hostel at Guntur Lodge Centre. He asked the officials to complete the shifting process within a week. Earlier, the minister had lunch along with the hostel students.

Tenders for Three Schools

Stating that tenders have been called for construction of three residential schools sanctioned to Guntur district, Kishore Babu said the works will be completed before the commencement of the next academic year.  While Rs 13 crore each will be spent on construction of school buildings at Kakanur and Tadikonda, Rs 15 crore will be spent on the school building at Adavitakkellapadu.
