"The schools will do the role of a catalyst and will empower the children from all sections of society. Everyone can study in English medium schools", Dotasara added.

He informed that as a celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the state government has decided that each district will have a school of up to class 8th named after Mahatma Gandhi.
