Referring to the tragedy in Uttarakhand, Yadav said the UP government had already sanctioned Rs. 25 crore and more assistance would be provided to the affected people. Yadav said party schemes like unemployment allowance, Kanya Vidya Dhan and laptop distribution had now attracted other state governments also. Pointing out that students should make proper use of the laptops, Yadav said any student trying to sell the e-machine would be tracked down and action would be taken against him.
Speaking on the occasion, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav said laptop would bridge the rural and urban divide. SP general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav conducted the programme.
