Moved by her tale, IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao tweeted, "No child her age should be working in insanitary conditions. If the young girl is willing, we can get her into government residential school immediately."

The Minister also asked his office to coordinate with Shankaramma's family and get her admitted to a residential school. The report had given a graphic account of the travails of the 13-year-old and her steely resolve to pursue her studies.
