New Delhi: HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar will felicitate a group of students who despite coming from under-privileged background scored high marks and secured admission in top Delhi colleges.
"It has been felt that while the students who top examinations should be recognised for their achievements, the hard work put by those who fought the odds to do well should also be lauded," a senior ministry official said.
Javadekar will felicitate the students at an event at his residence tomorrow.
"The event is aimed at sending the message that the HRD Minister's focus is on supporting all sections in the pursuit of quality education," the official said.
Soon after taking charge of the HRD Ministry earlier this month, Javadekar had honoured his teachers.
