Presiding over a review meeting of the society constituted for the purpose, the chief minister said these schools must be made functional for needy and deserving students, besides providing them free hostel facility, a spokesman said here.

These schools (one each) are being established in Mohali, Bathinda, Amritsar, Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Patiala for brilliant students of government schools scoring 80% or above marks in matriculation.
