Odisha MP Achyuta Samanta aspires to set up free educational institutes across country


Buoyed by the success of Odisha’s Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences, which provides free education to nearly 30,000 tribal students, it’s founder Achyuta Samanta has said he aspired to launch similar projects in other states to fight social ills of poverty and naxalism. ⮚ Samanta, during his interaction with media on Saturday night, a day after he appeared on the hot seat of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, said institutes, such as the one founded by him, could go a long way in fighting poverty, as “many talented children fail to complete their education for want of money”. ⮚ In partnership with an NGO, the Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) is working to set up an academy at Joka area, on the southern outskirts of Kolkata, he said. ⮚ In his home state, the Kandhamal MP said ten new centres would come up soon in tribal-dominated areas, in addition to the parent institute at Bhubaneswar and satellite units elsewhere in Odisha
