AIADMK to renovate school run in memory of MGR
AIADMK would undertake the entire renovation cost of flood-hit Dr MGR Home and Higher Secondary School for Speech and Hearing impaired, set up in memory of party founder and late Chief Minister M G Ramachandran.
"I consider it as my duty to serve the school which is being run in memory of Dr M G R. AIADMK will bear the entire cost to renovate the school", party supremo and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa said in a party statement.
She was acting on a request from the School Head Mistress Latha Rajendran that all the hearing aid products, LCD displays had been spoiled due to the recent flooding.
Jayalalithaa said as soon as she came to know about the flooding in the locality, she directed Chief Secretary K Gnanadesikan and Advisor to the Government, Sheila Balakrishnan to take up necessary steps.
The National Disaster Response Force and Army personnel acted promptly and rescued the students and teachers and they were accomodated in Sathya Studios for a period of five days, she said. Food was prepared for about 100 persons from her Poes Garden residence and all the essential products were supplied to the school, she said.
