“This programme will act a one platform where all services will be provided for students”, Dr Narayan said.

    Sunjay,
    Nobody is shouting here. May be you don't pay tax. Those who pay tax have an impression that their money is used for publicity stunts of political parties; instead of using them on priority basis.
    Now don't say that it's not a waste. I think there are lot more priorities even in education system than spending 300 crores on laptops. TAX payers feel happy and satisfied when the government utilizes their hard earned money in a responsible manner.
