Mann said this 'bani' can play a pivotal role in the emancipating society for the various problems being confronted by it.

The Chief Minister said following the footsteps of Guru Ravidass the state is making strenuous efforts for carving out an egalitarian society. He said in consonance with the path of equality shown by Guru Ravidass and Dr B.R. Ambedkar the government is giving top priority to education and health sectors

He said the schools of the state are being equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and human resource so that quality education can be imparted to the students from weaker and underprivileged sections of society.
