He said that the district administration had identified a site to construct a house for the boy's family at a cost of Rs 5 lakh, under the department's special grants.

The minister said that a mega campaign would be launched by the government to eradicate untouchability.

The parents of the boy, hailing from Ullerahalli in the district, were handed over the order copy on the construction of the house and the order copy, saying his educational expenses from PU to PG, would be borne by the department.

The coming elections will be a fight between those supporting terrorists and those curbing their activities, he said referring to the ban on PFI.
