Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said the state will set up Kanyashree colleges in all the districts, along with the Kanyashree University. Addressing the audience at the sixth Kanyashree Divas, Banerjee urged students from English-medium institutes not to treat their peers from Bengali medium as inferior. She, however, also urged girls from vernacular-medium schools to learn English for better career prospects as it was an international language.
The CM also asked the skill development department to help the girls through the Utkarsh Bangla scheme so they can be self sufficient.
