GULBARGA: Legislative Council Chairman V.R. Sudarshan on Saturday said the backwardness prevailing in some parts of the State can be eradicated by making education affordable to students in the backward regions.

Everybody, particularly education institutions, should strive to provide quality education at an affordable cost, he added.

Speaking after releasing the commemorative volume Sri Maale brought out to mark the 60th birth anniversary of educationist and Congress MLC Maruti Rao Maale here, Mr. Sudarshan said there are no two opinions in the Government that the Hyderabad Karnataka region is backward in all respects.

Aggravated

He noted that over the past several years, regional imbalances have aggravated in the State, and the Government is now committed to bring down the imbalances in development.

Referring to the D.M. Nanjundappa Committee report, which deals with the regional imbalances in the State, Mr. Sudarshan said the Government is committed to implement the recommendations.

He said the people of the region, elected representatives and educational institutions should join hands with the Government to remove the regional imbalances. Educational institutions have a key role to play in removing the imbalances.

Education is an important tool for the economic development of the region, he said and added that students empowered with education can compete effectively with their counterparts from the developed districts.

Mr. Sudarshan paid glowing tributes to Mr. Maale and People's Education Society for taking the initiative to impart quality education and providing opportunities to students of the region to excel in education.

Mr. Sudarshan, who arrived this morning, earlier paid a visit to the house of the late M.R. Tanga and paid floral tributes to the latter's portrait.

He said Tanga was an effective parliamentarian and raised key issues concerning the region and State. Tanga's meticulous preparation while speaking on any issue should be an example for other legislators, he added.
