"Parents work very hard to ensure that their children get proper nutrition. Now, parents of 62 lakh children studying in government schools and madrasas need not worry. The state has started its Annapurna Milk Scheme for the young population. Our future will be bright once these children start getting milk as part of their midday meal," Raje said while announcing the scheme at a state-level function at a government school in Dahmi Kalan here.

Students till Class 5 will get 150 ml of hot milk thrice a week while those in Class 6 to 8 will get 200 ml milk.

She highlighted innovations carried out in the state education sector, adding that vacancies of school teachers had been filled and model schools set up in all Panchayat samitis.
