She said, ”Even today, some schools do not have toilets and other necessities. This is the reason why students drop out. The government's slogan of 'Beti Padhao Beti Bachao' has been going on for years, it must become reality now”.
The actress was at the "World Education Summit and Awards 2018" organized here which felicitates India's leading private and government educational institutions.
The World Education Summit is a premier international platform dedicated to innovation and creative action in education and the award recognizes professional contributions and academic achievement of an individual or organization in the area of education.
