“Students, especially girls, must strive to overcome difficulties to achieve their goals,” Deputy Commissioner R. Ragapriya said.
She was addressing a rally after the inauguration of a sports event organized by the Department of Sports and Youth Empowerment in Yadgir on Tuesday.
Urging girls to take advantage of benefits meant for them, Dr Ragapriya said girls participate in sporting events such as kabbaddi, kho-kho and volleyball to prove they are as strong as men and that in fact they win these games. “You have to work hard, respect your commitment and adopt patience to facilitate the achievement of your goal not only in sport but also in your personal and professional life in the future,” she said. “You should also focus on studies outside of sport and bring the district to the highest level in the upcoming SSLC exams,” she advised.
The Deputy Commissioner suggested that Education Department officials organize special classes exclusively for SSLC students to help them perform well in exams.
Superintendent of Police CB Vedamurthy, Deputy Director of Public Instruction Shantagowda Patil, Zilla Panchayat Director of Planning BS Rathod, Deputy Director of Sports and Youth Empowerment Raju Bhavihalli and others were present .
