He said if one cannot apply his/her education in the society, the same cannot be termed as quality education even the individual may be equipped with vast knowledge.

As such, imparting moral education is needed which will instill a sense of contributions to the society.

He said that the education oriented scheme, Sarva Siksha Ahiyan (SSA) has been implemented in the state in 2004-05, four years later the launch of the scheme.

Jayentakumar said that food meant for mid-day meals were seized by undergrounds and instances of some groups taking hold of books meant for distribution to children saying they would distribute it.
